Sophie Mendelsohn

Sophie Mendelsohn practices psychoanalysis in Paris. Her research themes concern gender and race, with a view to questioning the possible points of connection between psychoanalysis and other disciplines. She was a co-founder of the Collectif de Pantin, which seeks to apprehend the subject of the unconscious from the blind spots of history where it is formed, particularly in its postcolonial dimension. The issues of racism, racialisation and segregation are examined both as determining the formation of the subject and as affecting the processes of subjectivation. See:
