Fixation: Freud’s Queer Counter-Concept /
Elissa Marder is Professor of French and Comparative Literature at Emory University where she is formally affiliated with the Departments of Philosophy and Women’s Gender, and Sexuality Studies and the Emory Psychoanalytic Studies Program. She holds honorary appointments at the London Graduate School and the European Graduate School. Her research includes 19th and 20th century French literature, philosophy, literary theory, psychoanalysis, film, photography, and feminist theory. Situated at the intersection of psychoanalysis, deconstruction, and feminism, her work engages with texts and questions that challenge traditional conceptions of temporality, birth, technology, sexual difference, and the limits of the human. She is the author of numerous books, including The Mother in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction: Psychoanalysis, Photography, Deconstruction (2012) and Dead Time: Temporal Disorders in the Wake of Modernity (Baudelaire & Flaubert) (2001).
