From the Editor

James W. Barron

Components of gender identity are complex and dynamic, creating a shifting spectrum of masculinities and femininities. Gender and Psychoanalysis examines that spectrum from psychoanalytic, sociocultural, and other relevant perspectives; explores implications for clinical practice; and illuminates gendered facets of our relational worlds.

Beginning its third year of publication, Gender and Psychoanalysis is becoming a significant new voice in the field of gender studies. The journal will continue to explore such questions as:

ο    How do conscious and unconscious assumptions of gender shape our encounters with patients?

ο    What are the relationships between socially assigned and performed gender roles and self-experienced gender identities?

ο    How does the active inclusion of gay and lesbian voices alter previously unexamined assumptions of normative gender development?

Many individuals have contributed to this exciting intellectual venture. I wish to thank those who served on the editorial board and helped launch this journal, and I am pleased to welcome new members who enhance the board's interdisciplinary perspectives.
