Edited by Ellie Ragland and Evelyn Moore in consultation with Jacques-Alain Miller, (Re)-turn: A Journal of Lacanian Studies explores the theories of French psychoanalyst, Jacques Lacan, within the context of a variety of fields, including clinical psychoanalysis, philosophy, critical studies, theatre, politics, music, visual arts, mass media, communications, religion, and literature.
The name of the journal—(Re)-turn: Journal of Lacanian Studies—signifies a number of things, Lacan’s return to Freud, the transformations in Lacan’s own work, as well as the return to the first American Lacanian journal, Newsletter of the Freudian Field (1987-1994). For Lacan, return has been a particularly important term, a psychoanalytic concept based on the premise that every juncture, every point of understanding or knowledge, is not only present in conscious life, but is represented precisely as a return where the conscious intersects with the unconscious. This is the place around which Lacanian studies must revolve.
