Sunday 22th October: ‘The phallus: an introduction’  at the Barn at 963 Kingsburg Road

What is the phallus and who has one? What are the implications for an understanding of masculinity? This lecture will serve as an introduction to psychoanalytic theories of masculinity.

 

Sunday, 5th November:Homo Economicus: an elegy’ at 961 Kingsburg Road at Sean Kennedy's house

Who is Homo Economicus? How is he constituted? Does he have a bellybutton? These questions will frame an examination of the concept of autonomy in psychoanalytic and economic discourse.

 

Sunday, 26th November: ‘Economic castration and the hypermasculine’ at 961 Kingsburg Road at Sean Kennedy's house

What does it mean to be economically castrated? How have men typically responded to such a predicament? What does hypermasculinity mean, and what are its effects in an age of economic castration?

 

All are welcome.
