Description

“The body,” as Susan Bordo suggests, “is a powerful symbolic form, a surface on which the central rules, hierarchies, and even metaphysical commitments of a culture are inscribed” and continually reinforced. Nowhere is this assertion more observable than in how the cultures in which we move seek to delimit and define our erotic lives and how we embody gender. Most insidiously, these dominant narratives seek to recruit us to do the work of our own erasure. But resistance is possible! When these cultural scripts are refused spaces are created for dreaming liberation and for embodied eroticism to flourish. This talk will focus on tapping into the (intergenerational) wisdom and imaginal landscape of our bodies and the erotic stories they would seek to tell.

Lucie
Lucie Fielding, PhD, MA, LMHCA, Resident in Counseling (she/they) is a queer, non-binary femme, and a therapist practicing in Virginia and Washington. She holds an MA in Counseling Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute (2018) as well as a PhD in French from Northwestern University (2008), where she specialized in erotic literature. Their background in literature attunes them to the many ways that cultural scripts inscribe themselves on our bodies and can inform our embodied erotic lives. In addition to their work as a therapist, Lucie teaches in the Sex Therapy Certificate Program at Antioch University-Seattle. They are the author of Trans Sex: Clinical Approaches to Trans Sexualities and Erotic Embodiments (2021), which was named a finalist for a 2022 Lambda Literary Award (Lammy) in the Transgender-Nonfiction category and was awarded an 2022 AASECT Book Award (Book for Sexuality Professionals).
