Race is the classification of a species, and we are the human race, period. Then what is this other thing - the hostility, the social racism, the othering? What is the nature of othering's comfort, its allure, its power? 
- Toni Morrison, The Origin of Others, p.14
In this ugly moment in American history, when racism and hatred of “the Other” runs rampant— seemingly without shame—through social media, presidential tweets and the streets of our land, it is essential  that we in the field of psychology wrestle with the question: “How do  we work with the other in ourselves, our patients, and our culture?” As analysts who are also writers, we agree with Toni Morrison that literature provides “a controlled wilderness, an opportunity to be and to become the Other. The Stranger. With sympathy, clarity and  the risk of self–examination.” ( Morrison, The Origin of Others, 2017, p. 90.) 
 
We will spend two days delving into poetry and fiction which engage these difficult subjects, considering clinical issues raised by these writings, and engaging in group discussions. Medria Connolly 
will facilitate.  Fanny Brewster: Audre Lorde: Poetry and Power of the Black Unicorn. Forrest Hamer: Terrance Hayes sings to his past and future assassin. Sam Kimbles: Transforming Racialized Subjectivities of Self and Other in the works of James Baldwin, Toni Morrison and in our clinical relationships. Naomi Lowinsky: Black Presence in White Poetry: Seeking American Soul in poems  
by Alan Ginsberg, Frank O’Hara, Carolyn Kizer and others.
