The Suffolk Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (SIPP), and Stony Brook’s Department of Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies are presenting the film, Where the Wild Things Are, on Friday, March 4, at 6:45 pm in the Charles B. Wang Center. The screening will be followed by a cross-disciplinary discussion featuring Ruth Bottingheimer, Department of Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies, and SIPP’s Elizabeth Allured. The discussion will be moderated by Samuel R. Taube from SIPP.
Bottigheimer is a research professor whose areas of special interest include children’s literature and their illustrations as literary responses to and social expressions of the cultures from which they emerged. She is the author of more than 70 articles and books, and is working on a new history of European fairy tales.
Allured is a practicing psychoanalyst who works with children and adults. She is on the SIPP faculty and has published articles on the treatment of children. She also maintains a private practice in Port Washington and Roslyn Heights.
Taube, also part of the SIPP faculty, has taught courses in English literature and composition at Stony Brook University, Farmingdale State College, and Suffolk County Community College. He has published articles on psychotherapy and has a practice in Stony Brook.
