The Doctor and Mrs A - Ethics and Counter-Ethics in an Indian Dream Analysis
Publisher: Fordham University Press
In the 1940’s, the young Punjabi “Mrs. A.” reflected on sexuality, gender, and struggle in a dream analysis with psychiatrist Dev Satya Nand, drawing on Hindu myth to conceive a better, socialist future. An unconventional history of gender and sexuality in late colonialism, this book reminds us that the West does not have a monopoly on feminism, psychiatry, or ethical paradigms.
