Leswin Laubscher, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Chair of the Duquesne University Psychology Department
“The glory of the Infinite reveals itself through what it is capable of doing in the witness” (Levinas, 1985, p. 109)
Over the past three years, we have organized the conference theme around bringing Levinas into dialogue with complementary lines of thought including psychoanalysis, the philosophy of Martin Buber, and how Levinas and how feminist theory informs our encounter with the other. This year we hope to take up questions related to the ethical encounter with the other in psychotherapy and research.
Dr. Laubscher, our keynote, counts teaching, research, and clinical experience as a psychologist in both the United States and South Africa. Recent research interests and publications have examined the intersection of culture and psychology, and the importance of the philosophies of Jacques Derrida and Emmanuel Levinas for psychology. Dr. Laubscher is also one of the principal researchers in an expansive international study that seeks to archive and analyze memories of Apartheid experiences.
