This has been such a great week and it’s ending with a little bit more good news: I’ve just received word on the election results and I’m so happy to share that I will now be joining the MLA’s Delegate Assembly. My appointment won’t begin until January 12th, but I am so excited to have a preview of the role at this year’s MLA assembly meeting.

I also just want to give a big big big congratulations to my wonderful dissertation co-director Peggy Kamuf who has recently received a knighthood from France. How wonderful!

A Bit of News!

The Profession / No Comments

I’m pleased to announce two updates to my C.V.: I was recently appointed by the Executive Council to the Modern Language Association’s (MLA) Committee on the Status of Graduate Students in the Profession. I’m very excited to get to talk more with  graduate students at the Graduate Student Lounge when we all travel to Vancouver this January!

I’m also excited to join the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis’ Education Planning Committee. Part of the discussions we will be undertaking will focus on the future of programs like the CORST program at the Chicago Institute which enables people such as myself (Ph.D. without prior clinical training, from a non-clinically based field) the opportunity to bridge their theoretical training in psychoanalysis with a clinical program that would enable them to become practicing analysts.

So much exciting work ahead!
