Vanessa Rumble - Vanessa Rumble



Vanessa Rumble has taught at Boston College for 27 years. Eleven years ago, I laid the groundwork and gained institutional recognition for a undergraduate program in Psychoanalytic Studies at Boston College. My teaching and writing are primarily in the areas of Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Philosophy (esp. Kierkegaard) and in the Philosophy of Psychoanalysis. Sample publications: “Why Moriah? On Weaning and the Trauma of Transcendence,” in Kierkegaard’s Fear and Trembling: A Critical Guide, ed. Daniel W. Conway, Cambridge University Press, 2015. “Progress in Spirit: Freud and Kristeva on Ethics and Unheimlichkeit,” in Hosting the Stranger: Between Religions, ed. Richard Kearney (New York: Fordham University Press, 2011).
