On Saturday, February 9, 11:30 a.m. to l:00 p.m., the Poetry and Psychoanalysis Program of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis invites you to a special presentation in honor of the Chinese New Year.
Paula Varsano, Associate Professor in the Chinese Program at U.C. Berkeley, will speak on “Translating the Ineffable: A Reading of Classical Chinese Poetry,” introduced by Alice Jones.
Paula Varsano, Associate Professor, received her B.A. in Chinese Language and Literature in 1980 from Yale College and her Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1988. Professor Varsano specializes in classical poetry and poetics from the third through the eleventh centuries, with particular interest in literature and subjectivity, the evolution of spatial representation in poetry, the history and poetics of traditional literary criticism, and the theory and practice of translation. She is the author of The Poetry of Li Po and Its Critical Reception (Hawaii, 2003), and is currently working on a book tentatively titled Coming to Our Sense: Locating the Subject in Traditional Chinese Literary Writing.
Our events are free and open to the public.
