    Marilyn Charles, PhD, ABPP

    (Richmond, MA)

    The Haunting of Hill House: Psyche, Soma, and Destiny


    7-9pm (CST): ZOOM Presentation and discussion


    About the presentation: Fairy tales and horror stories inhabit the realm of terrible truths and afford the opportunity to survive and work through them. Psychoanalysis invites us to enter more deeply into that enigmatic realm of imagistic, oneiric meanings and invites us to explore possibilities beyond the concrete manifestations of daily life, to penetrate the mysteries and discover the patterns.  I will use lenses of theory alongside literature and screen portrayals of a haunted house to investigate the realm of the uncanny and explore ways in which we are haunted by truths we fail to face.   (93).

    Marilyn Charles, PhD, ABPP, is a staff psychologist and psychoanalyst at the Austen Riggs Center. She is a training and supervising analyst at the Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis as well as the International Coordinator of the Psychoanalytic Track at the Universidad de Monterrey (UDEM).  Dr. Charles is also Co-Chair of the Association for the Psychoanalysis of Culture and Society (APCS), in addition to being a contributing editor of Psychoanalysis, Culture, and Society. She is actively engaged in mentoring, promoting community involvement and socially relevant research. 

    Dr. Charles’  interests include creativity, psychosis, reflective function and the intergenerational transmission of trauma. She is an artist, a poet, and a writer, having published over 100 articles and book chapters as well as five books, including Working with Trauma: Lessons from Bion and Lacan,  and  Psychoanalysis and Literature.  She has, in addition, edited five volumes, including: Introduction to Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Fragments of Trauma and the Social Production of Suffering (with Michael O’Loughlin), Women and Psychosis and Women and the Psychosocial Construction of Madness (with Marie Brown), and The Importance of Play in Early Childhood Education: (with Jill Bellinson.)
