Conference: The roots of prejudice – philosophy and psychoanalysis

Saturday 15th November 2014, 9.30 – 5.00pm at The Anna Freud Centre, London.

An international conference about hating others and the social and clinical aspects of prejudice.

The contemporary resurgence of malignant forms of prejudice, and the continuing ubiquity of the everyday variety, brings a new sense of urgency to this important subject. With speakers from psycho-social studies, group analysis, philosophy and psychoanalysis, this international conference addresses contemporary manifestations of various forms of prejudice with perspectives on their unconscious dynamics.

Speakers and titles:
Lene Auestad ‘Prejudice as Socially Unconscious’
Brian Klug ‘The Logic of an Illusion’
Farhad Dalal ‘Prejudice as Ideology: The creation of ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ groups in society – and psychoanalysis’
Domain Aisha Abbasi ‘Prejudice in the Analytic Setting:  From the Socio-political Sphere to the Intra-psychic’
