Tracy Doris Morgan
Tracy D. Morgan is the founding Editor and Host of NBiP. A psychoanalyst in private practice in NYC for over sixteen years, seeing individuals, couples and groups, she is also a graduate of The Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies. Almost becoming an academic historian, studying the history of sexuality, medicine, culture and race in a PhD program, she decided that history with a petite “h” was more her metier. Steeped in modes that are decisively Modern Psychoanalytic, she has been mentored, analyzed and supervised by adherents of Spotnitz, Ormont, and Meadow. Nevertheless, she is perpetually interested in experiencing and exploring what is going on in the larger world of psychoanalytic thinking. Toward that end, she is committed to bringing a plethora of psychoanalytic ideas and a slew of new interlocutors into the public sphere, where she thinks they all very much so belong. Morgan maintains a blog, “Walking Through Life Holding Freud’s Hand” that largely comments upon on the paper of records’ treatment of things psychoanalytic and is a teaching assistant at CMPS. Finally, NBiP was the very proud winner of the prestigious NAAP Gradiva Award for New Media in 2013.

Claire-Madeline Culkin is currently pursuing her Masters in Fine Arts in Writing at Sarah Lawrence College in their non-fiction program where she is writing and researching a text on the limits of the DSM in capturing the idiosyncratic expression of an individual’s symptom structure; her text is framed in a personal narrative about the lineage of loss and the inheritance of generational mourning. Claire-Madeline’s interests lie at the intersection of Lacanian psychoanalytic theory and Catholic theology, which are often at the fore of her discussions with the authors she is privileged to interview for the New Books Network. Her work has been published in creative journals, and has been presented as part of academic conferences and lecture series. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Eugene Lang College: The New School for Liberal Arts. To keep in touch, or to keep up with her writing, visit www.
