The Birkeck Institute for Social Research presents:
Interrogating “the Social Unconscious”
What is meant by the concept of “the social unconscious”? What is it trying to capture, and is it a notion that can truly bring sociology and psychoanalysis into dialogue? How is it used in clinical work, and how might it be used in social research?
Earl Hopper – The concept of the social unconscious: in praise of ambiguity and conceptual elasticity
