We bring together academics, students and the public to engage in lively debates on the fascinating work of Freud.
The Pandemic in America: A crisis for democracy
In this talk, Dr Harris will focus on the implications of the pandemic for American culture. Whatever we began to think about a virus to which all were vulnerable, we are finding that divisions of class and race produce radically distinct experiences. Drawing on psychoanalysis, trauma theory, models of intersectionality and the force of political interpellation, she will look at our contemporary moment.
