Repetition Trouble: A Picture Atlas of the Girl from Penelope Boothby to Greta Thunberg
Inspired by Georges Didi-Huberman's reading of Aby Warburg's art history with Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytical theory, this talk will seek to construct a picture atlas (Bilderatlas) of the girl as repeated both through the motif known as girl-in-a-mobcap and as a more enigmatic and troubling emotive formula (Pathosformeln). Tracing this repetition from the 1780’s and a portrait painting of Penelope Boothby to the present day and a portrait photography of Greta Thunberg I shall draw on Freud’s diagrammatic overview of an ordinary instance of repression – the famous case of the forgetting of the proper name Signorelli in The Psychopathology of Everyday Life (1905) – as a kind of model for my picture atlas of the girl.

The PRAXIS study group is an open forum for discussing, exploring and testing different analytical and practical research methods and approaches together with fellow researchers.
