Money Menace

NEW FORMATIONS 72: PSYCHOANALYSIS AND MONEY

Out now: new formations 72 Psychoanalysis and money
Guest editor: David Bennett

An international cast of psychoanalysts, cultural theorists, philosophers and critics explore aspects of the nexus between psychoanalysis, money and economics in the aftermath of the latest global financial crisis. Asking not only what psychoanalysis can tell us about financial crashes, but also what crashes may reveal about psychoanalysis, it stages a confrontation between two disciplines that have been mutually indifferent and mutually opaque for much of the past 100 years.

Burning Memories: Sacrifice & the Unconscious in History

Wednesday 14th October 7.30pm Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ

Speakers: Uri Hadar, Stephen Frosh, Eyad El Saraj Chair: Lynne Segal

Memory of historical events is necessarily collective, but acquires personal characteristics that are of the same nature as individual memory in general. This idea is illustrated through memories of holocaust survivors as they construct themselves in a particular biography of an Israeli child. Holocaust memories are then connected to the ethos of military strength in Israeli society, which ethos undertakes to transform the historical marking of the Jews as victims, sacrificed by the nations on the altar of ethnic power. This is where the Palestinians enter the unconscious Israeli narrative, allowing the movement of the Jew away from the position of the sacrificed. The theme of sacrifice conversion marks itself in historical events such as the Naqba and the recent attack on Gaza. The talk examines the manner in which these themes feed into personal memory systems and reconstructs the workings of memory through the entire historical cycle.
