Dr. Azeen Khan is an Assistant Professor of English and Creative Writing at Dartmouth College and a psychoanalyst with a practice in New York. She specializes in postcolonial literatures and theory, feminist and critical theory, psychoanalysis, and continental philosophy. Her book, The Subaltern Clinic, draws on the history of colonial medicine and psychiatry, feminist studies, and critical race theory, to trace the movement of psychoanalysis from its birthplace in Europe to the “rest of the globe” – to Algeria, India, and South Africa, among other places. Prior to joining Dartmouth College, she was a Nancy L.
