Description

An afternoon with Todd Mc Gowan

We are privileged to present the first opportunity to hear Todd McGowan speak in Ireland.

Along with Slavoj Žižek, Todd McGowan is one of the most eminent and prolific writers at the intersections of psychoanalysis and cinema, and psychoanalysis and politics at work today.

At this event there will be the chance to hear Todd speak about psychoanalysis, film, and politics in two talks, each of which will be followed by Q&A and discussion.

Todd is described as ”brilliantly lucid” in his interpretations of film text and psychoanalytic theory; and his books are regarded as “indispensable for anyone interested in the interpretation of films”. He has over 32 books listed on Goodreads including The Real Gaze (2007), Capitalism and Desire The Psychic Cost of Free Markets (2016), and Only a Joke can Save us (2017). Todd also teaches courses in film theory, history, and genre at the University of Vermont. His areas of interest include Hegel, psychoanalysis, and existentialism, and the intersection of these lines of thought with cinema.

APPI and the Irish Psychoanalytic Film Festival organisers are delighted to host this afternoon with Todd in Dublin City University (Room HG22 School of Nursing and Life Sciences)

Saturday 19th May, 2-6pm.

Politics and Psychoanalysis: 'Paranoia and Populism'.

Psychoanalysis and Film: 'Between the Capitalist and the Cop - the Path to politics in Blade Runner 2049'
