Voyage Beyond Borders: Journeys within and without

Lecturer: Eva D. Papiasvili, Ph.D., ABPP Date of the lecture: 20. 09. 2017

Based in a view of conflict as potentially promoting of psychic change and growth, author’s emigration/immigration will be reflected on and explored from multiple dynamic perspectives:  As an attempt to translate earliest enigmatic messages, to re-construct puzzling and pleasurable archaic drive-object connections; As an arogant rebellious quest for knowledge beyond the proscribed boundaries and a search for an expanded experiential and representational range; And as a (re)discovery of the wished for Paradise of the lost childhood. Author’s own ensuing version of co-creating the world she lives in personally and professionally, where both ‘belonging’ and ‘otherness’, originally in conflict, can  reciprocally enrich each other, will be presented.
