Iteration and Homologies of Difference: A Discussion of Veronica Csillag’s “Emmy Grant: Immigration as Repetition of Trauma and as Potential Space”

Francisco J. González, M.D.

This discussion of Veronica Csillag’s paper “Emmy Grant: Immigration as Repetition of Trauma and as Potential Space” (this issue) emphasizes the importance of place (rather than the more common psychoanalytic category of space) and the iteration of psychic dynamisms.
