This refers to a research project to be developed over a period of one year at the Centre de Recherches Psychanalyse, Médecine et Societé (CRPMS), linked to the Genre, normes et psychanalyse research line of the Université Paris-Diderot (Paris 7). The main objective is to carry out a bibliographical review of psychoanalytic literature with a feminist and gender approach for the analysis of non-binary identities, differentiated from transsexuality, and from what it´s study by psychiatry and psychoanalysis established as a parameter for the understanding of non-binary gender manifestations. We seek to understand how changes in gender relations, arising from the decline of patriarchy, feminist achievements in the labor market, feminist problematizations about gender violence and hierarchy, women's liberation in the use of their bodies and the depathologization of homosexuality, affected the psychoanalytic approaches to allow new readings of the genders. We will examine classical and current French feminist psychoanalytic perspectives, Argentine psychoanalysis in interlocution with French authors (Foucault, Derrida and Deleuze), psychoanalysis with a Queer and Foucaultian perspective, and Lacanian psychoanalysis re-read from gender perspectives. With the deepening of the theme, we hope to contribute to the understanding of non-binary identities in an integrated way to social transformations, allowing to establish new parameters in the psychoanalytic clinic.
