What is the role of psychoanalysis in a world wracked by an ongoing pandemic on top of widening racial and economic inequality? Can psychoanalysis shed light on why systems of oppression are so stable? Does it have a vision for how to achieve transformative social change?
In his new book A People’s History of Psychoanalysis: From Freud to Liberation Psychology, Daniel José Gaztambide reviews the history of social justice in psychoanalysis, and how psychoanalytically-informed theories of race, class, and liberation gave rise to Latin American Liberation Psychology.
Drawing on this history, the author and a panel of artists, activists, clinicians, and scholars will join the audience in a Zoom call to explore how psychoanalysis can help us understand this current moment.
Through spoken word, discussion, and dialogue with the audience, we will dare to dream a new world of justice and equity for all.
Speakers: Almas Merchant PhD, Anton Hart PhD, Neil Altman PhD, Daniel José Gaztambide, PsyD
Artists/Activists: Mario "Ponce" Pagan Morales, Isa Guzman, Rich Villar, Rebel Poet, Anthony Rivera, Mark Vigo, Albert Areizaga
