About the Symposium
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, political subjectivity and affect – 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
The symposium will be held in Room 0.85 of Glamorgan building, Cardiff University. This building is located in King Edward VII Avenue, Cardiff, Wales, CF10 3WA.
