Benjamin Kilborne, Benjamin Kilborne is an IPA member American training analyst. After graduating from the piano department of The Julliard School in New York, he completed two PhDs at Sorbonne University Department of Anthropology and the Southern California Psychoanalytic Institute at Los Angeles. A student of Roland Barhtes and Georges Devereux, Kilborne has taught courses in anthropology, history and philosophy of social sciences in addition to his work in psychoanalysis. He has authored almost a hundred articles, which have been translated to numerous languages. His work titled Interprétetations du rêve au Maroc (1978) is the first example of comparative dream interpretation studies based on the dreams in Freud’s work. His second book, La culture et la Nature Humaine: Les écrits de Melford Spirol (1987) is about cultural defenses. His book titled Disappearing Persons: Shame and Appearance (2002), also translated into Italian, represents a new approach combining clinical cases and the discussion of literary works with an anthropological perspective. Kilborne’s latest book has been translated into Turkish. “Utanç ve Haset, Görünüm Kaygısı ve Kem Göz” is currently in press.
In his speech titled “Shame, Envy and the Evil Eye”, Kilborne will address issues which play a key role in literature and popular culture that remain largely unexplored in psychoanalytic literature from a clinical psychoanalysis framework.
