Jacqueline Rose is one of the most influential and provocative scholars working in the humanities today. She has written extensively on a range of topics including feminism, motherhood, politics, and psychoanalysis.
In this seminar, Rose will explore the political implications of transgender subjectivities and the harassment of women from a psychoanalytic perspective. She will argue that the dialogue with psychoanalysis on transgender identities and the harassment of women – two of the most vexed, complex issues of our time – is as challenging as it continues to be urgent. She asks "What happens when we try to insert the concept of the unconscious into the reality of our political lives, or rather, when we recognise the place of the unconscious in the public identities we foster, inhabit, and fight?" Both transgender issues and the harassment of women confront us with the question of social justice. Is it always the role of psychoanalysis to issue a caution in relation to our dreams of a better world, or might it belong right at the heart of our struggle to attain it?
