What are the two senses of the word “invention” that Montrelay speaks about in “The Double Status”? How does Barthes’s discussion of the history of rhetoric in “The Old Rhetoric” expand your appreciation of what is at stake in invention subjectively? How is the archaic notion of invention Montrelay alerts us to resonant with the claim Lacan makes is his early work concerning the status of the rhetorician as the precursor of the psychoanalyst? In what way does invention in the archaic sense Montrelay alerts us to related to the floating attention required of the psychoanalyst? What is the relation of said floating attention to the unconscious as a floating field as she describes it with the help of quantum physics? What may the practice of floating attention generate in the libidinal economy of the unconscious that is akin to invention in the ancient sense? Describe and discuss what formal and economic transformations are involved.
Jan Mukarovsky speaks of poetry as “violence done to usage.” Structurally speaking, Mukarovsky’s thesis is close to Shklovsky’s sense of the poetic as defamiliarization of what has become habitual. The signifier “violence,” albeit used metaphorically, brings the dimension of the drive, of jouissance, and hence of the flesh that is the site of jouissance, into the field of the poetic. How, then, is the poetic imbricated with the body of the drives as psychoanalysis speaks of it? How is this imbrication manifest in the foundational texts of psychoanalysis such as Freud Letter 52 to Fliess and the Project for a Scientific Psychology?
In “The Double Status of the Unconscious” Montrelay speaks of what is one of her most original contributions to psychoanalytic theory: the concept of the “leap” (le saut), the ejection of a fragment from the unconscious once it transitions from a floating (or ondulatory) configuration to a fragmentary (or crepuscular) one. In her book, L’ombre et le nom: sur la feminite (The Shadow and the Name: On Femininity” ), she relates this concept to the circuit of the drive, that is o say, the fragment that leaps is a precipitate of the drive. What might we learn from this concept for poetic theory? In what way does thinking of the poetic in Montrelay’s term, not as a vehicle of sense and not even in the Shklovskian sense as what impedes sense, but as a precipitate of the drive ejected under particular psychic/economic conditions change our conception of the poetic,in particular in its connection with femininity as she conceptualizes it in “Inquiry into Femininity””?
Memory. Write a paper describing what happened or may have happened when you learned about Sigmund Freud from chapter 1 of the textbook.
Topic: This paper is a chance for you to show off your knowledge of material related to the textbook chapter on memory. Write a paper describing what happened or may have happened when you learned about Sigmund Freud from chapter 1 of the textbook. Avoid direct quotations, but instead put ideas in your own words and show off as much knowledge as possible (e.g., “Initially, I saw the words “Sigmund Freud” and those would have entered my iconic memory. Iconic memory is….In this case, iconic memory would have….Later, when I tried to recall this material, I may have experienced blocking. Blocking is….This blocking would have happened as follows:….”) This is not a paper about Sigmund Freud, but instead, you are using ideas related to him as a way of explaining how your memory functioned or could have functioned. Give definitions of key terms in your own words. Quality: In order to attain a passing grade, students must follow the guidelines and produce writing and grammar appropriate for a college paper. Format: The paper will be in the format of an APA 7 th edition review paper (i.e., no methods or results section) except for three things: 1) It will be single-spaced, 2) On the title page, you will write the number of words in the paper immediately under the title in bold font (e.g., 768 words; Don’t include words on the title page or reference page in your word count), and 3) you won’t write your name anywhere on the paper. Length and components: The paper will have a title page, a maximum of 800 words of main text, and a references page (the textbook will probably be your only reference). Be sure to use citations and the reference in APA style. Formatting guides: The Psychology Lab at the College provides a guide for producing papers in APA style. Their guide is excellent, but the example they provide has some elements you will not need (e.g., methods section, results section, discussion section, appendix, tables). That guide may be found on the Blackboard site for this course. A video will be provided on the Blackboard page for this course giving suggestions for easing the process of formatting in APA style. Font and Margins: Use Arial 11 or Times New Roman 12 or Calibri Body 11 and use 1-inch margins. Citations: The first time you rely on a source in a paragraph, use a parenthetical citation to indicate your source [e.g., “According to our textbook (Schacter et al., 2017), iconic memory is…”]. If you rely on that source again in the same paragraph, you don’t need to use a second parenthetical citation [e.g., “The textbook also says that…”] unless it’s unclear to the reader which source you relied on. If you rely on that source in a separate paragraph, you will need to use a parenthetical citation at least once in that separate paragraph. Some students find it valuable to learn to use the Zotero reference manager for formatting citations and references in their papers. New page: Insert a page break any time you want to start a new page (e.g., at end of title page). Abstract: No abstract is needed for this paper. Author note: No author note is needed for this paper. Paragraphs: Indent the first line of each paragraph. Don’t include extra blank lines or added blank space under titles or under subtitles or between paragraphs. Instead, use single-spacing throughout. If you are using Microsoft Word, you can format it as follows: (1) select all text including titles [by typing Ctrl-A] (2) set font by selecting home menu and changing font to Arial 11 or Times New Roman 12, , or Calibri Body 11, (3) set margins by selecting the Page Layout menu and by selecting triangle under “Margins” option and using custom setting option to set margins to one inch, (4) remove spaces between paragraphs by setting spacing Before and After paragraphs to zero, (5) convert to single spacing by again making sure all text is selected, and then either (a) typing Ctrl-1 or (b) selecting the layout menu, opening dialogue menu by clicking bottom right arrow in paragraph box near top of screen and choosing single-spacing.

Research Methods in I/O Psychology
Design a unique experiment to help us understand the possible connection between variables.
For example, if I was interested in exploring the relationship between number of hours a student
slept the night before an exam (Independent Variable) and their test performance (Dependent
Variable), I would ask participants how many hours they slept before the exam and their
subsequent test grade.
Once you provide your area of research interest, provide the following information:
1-Is your experiment quantitative or qualitative and explain why.
2-List the Independent and Dependent variables.
3-List the Predictor and Criterion variables.
4-Discuss the correlation you would like to see by providing a correlation coefficient and whether
the correlation you expect is positive or negative.
5-Discuss the two types of research methods (i.e. primary versus secondary) and which would
be most appropriate to use in the experiment you designed
