Emma Lieber



Emma Lieber is a psychoanalyst in private practice in New York and a part-time lecturer in Literary Studies at the New School; she also teaches Russian literature at Barnard and Columbia.  She teaches courses on nineteenth-century Russian and comparative literature; psychoanalysis and literature; autotheory; and feminist theory and literature.  Her recent book, The Writing Cure (Bloomsbury 2020), tells the story of her decade-long analysis by conjugating critical explorations of works of psychoanalytic theory and literary texts with autobiographical writing.  Her work has further appeared in Slavic Review, Slavic and East European Journal, The Point Magazine, Cabinet, LitHub, New England Review, The Massachusetts Review, and The European Journal of Psychoanalysis.  She received her PhD (2011) from Columbia University in Slavic Languages and her BA from Yale University (2002) in Slavic Languages and Literatures.
