By developing conceptions such as the social unconscious and investigating the effects of societal moralisms, we hope to shed new light on major Australian social issues such as racism, sexism, stereotyping, indigenous recognition, alternative family structures, and religious fundamentalism.
We believe that the best way forward is through open and widely accessible conversations, conducted in ordinary language, free from technical terminology. We provide a platform for discussion that is uniquely inclusive, where psychoanalysts from various schools meet with academics, public intellectuals, artists and members of the wider community.
The series brings together academics of various disciplines, psychoanalysts and public intellectuals to explore various ways of using psychoanalysis as a fruitful matrix through which to understand complex and puzzling cultural and social phenomena of importance in the contemporary world.
