(p.147) Conclusion
Freud's Jaw and Other Lost Objects

Lana Lin

Fordham University Press

This chapter revisits some of the resonant themes of Freud’s Jaw by threading together anecdotes drawn from the author’s own experience, from Freud’s, Lorde’s, and Sedgwick’s lives, as well as autopathographies by Edward Said and Christina Crosby. The chapter contends that loss and gain are imbricated, not unlike destruction and creation, and disidentification and identification. It concludes that the collaborative project of survival may be a means of provisional reparation by which incomplete individuals can face the future.

Keywords:   disidentification, loss, snow globe
