Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies Annual Conference: The Revolutionary Unconscious: Social Upheaval and Social Cohesion, November 2012
Against the background of recent and prevailing social upheavals – the riots in the UK; the banking crisis; the Occupy movement; the Arab Spring; the near civil war in Syria – this one-day conference brings together psychoanalytic, sociological, and literary perspectives to examine the roots of what holds societies together and what rips them apart.
Welcome - Mrs. Sue Kegerris - Director
Introduction - Professor Karl Figlio - Research Director
