Association for Psychosocial Studies Biennial Conference
5th-7th April 2018, The Fusion building, Talbot Campus, Bournemouth University
‘Psychosocial Reflections on a Half Century of Cultural Revolution: The 50th anniversary of seasons of love and protest’
Barry Richards (BU), Gail Lewis (Birkbeck) Lynne Segal (Birkbeck) Sally Alexander (Goldsmiths) Liz Frost (UWE)
Join us to reflect on revolutionary relationships and revolutionary politics which challenged authority then and which influence us now.
The cultural forces and the political movements of 1967 and 1968 aimed to change the world, and did so. Recent development of some populist and protest politics could be seen as a continuation of the revolutionary movements in the 1960s. Hedonic themes that recall the summer of love suffuse contemporary life, and self-reflection and emotional literacy have also become prominent values, linked towards human diversity and the international community.
We have over 37 panels that include interdisciiplinary academic papers from renowned international scholars from the spheres of history, politics, feminism, psychoanalysis, sociology and also art, digital media, poetry and social dreaming workshops and film screenings . On Friday evening there is a public engagement Cabaret event with poetry, music and comedy and everyone is welcome!
