“The Questions of Contemporary Psychoanalysis: A Decolonial Exploration of Analytic Futurity” with Daniel José Gaztambide, PsyD

April 5, 2025 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Outdated. Unscientific. Regressive. Such words capture a psychoanalysis in question. Through his presentation, Gaztambide draws on decoloniality, psychoanalytic theory, and research to address a series of questions plaguing contemporary psychoanalysis—the question of sexuality, the question of development, and the question of gender. Exploring these questions reveals the complex intersections of race and class, while simultaneously offering a different path toward psychoanalytic theory and practice—inviting us to imagine a psychoanalysis for today, a psychoanalysis for all.

Daniel José Gaztambide, PsyD, is assistant professor of psychology at Queens College, where he directs the Frantz Fanon Lab for Decolonial Psychology. He is the author of A People’s History of Psychoanalysis: From Freud to Liberation Psychology and its forthcoming sequel, Decolonizing Psychoanalytic Technique: Putting Freud on Fanon’s Couch (to be released May 4, 2024). His work on the public policy implications of these frameworks have earned him a presidential citation from the American Psychological Association as part of the Taskforce on Strategies for the Elimination of Racism, Discrimination, and Hate
