Event description

Description

A special one-day conference

in association with
The Centre for Politics and Media, Bournemouth University
Media and the Inner World Research Network

We are surrounded by political culture as never before and yet never felt so powerless. In this special conference we look at a broad idea of political culture and psychoanalysis, discussed as history (Zaretsky), as a state of mind (Stokoe), as televisual culture (Davies) and as the cultures of political practice (Hollins), exploring how these different areas feed into the political imagination and the unconscious processes that shape it. And as political culture seeps into people’s minds so ‘politics’ becomes a factor in the therapeutic relationship itself.
