Symposium on the Unconscious
Tuesday, 29 May 2012 from 09:30 to 18:00 (BST)
Cardiff, United Kingdom
This public symposium is specifically concerned with how Freud’s theoretical subversion, whose central tenet is the subject’s predominantly unconscious nature, has been variously understood, theorised and operationalized for the purposes of critical and empirical analysis. Of particular interest is the question of how to conceptualise the relationship between the unconscious, affect, political subjectivity and socio-political transformation – a question that informs the work of all the psychoanalytically informed speakers at this event.
Professor Valerie Walkerdine (SOCSI, Cardiff University): ‘Post Lacanian thinking and social research: history, geography, past and future’
Dr Fabio Vighi (EUROP, Cardiff University):‘I think where I am not: the unconscious in theory and practice’
Roundtable panel discussion: The unconscious and socio-political transformation
