Psychoanalysis and Liberation: Four Arguments

This online event is to explore the contribution of psychoanalysis to liberation, including discussion of Neil Faulkner’s last published book Mind Fuck: The Mass Psychology of Creeping Fascism (Resistance Books).

The event will be introduced and chaired by Ian Parker, author of Radical Psychoanalysis and Anti-Capitalist Action (Resistance Books).

Guest contributors critically reflect on arguments in Neil Faulkner’s book and talking
about their own work linking psychoanalysis with liberation will be Lara Sheehi, co-author of
Psychoanalysis Under Occupation: Practicing Psychoanalysis in Palestine (Routledge), and
Alicia Valdés, author of Toward a Feminist Lacanian Left: Psychoanalytic Theory and
Intersectional Politics (Routledge). We will have a good time for disagreement and discussion.
