Talk: Enduring Time by Lisa Baraitser

The Richardson Seminar on the History of Psychiatry will host the last meeting of this academic year on Wednesday, May 26, at 2PM EST. All are welcome.

Lisa Baraitser, Ph.D., will present the Steven-Barchas Lecture on “Enduring Time”.

Lisa Baraitser is Professor of Psychosocial Theory in the Department of Psychosocial Studies, Birkbeck, University of London, and a Psychoanalyst in practice in London. Her 2017 book, Enduring Time (Bloomsbury), explores what experiences of suspended time – waiting, delaying, staying, remaining, enduring, returning and repeating – may tell us about the survival of social bonds. Working with an eclectic archive of cultural, political and artistic objects, the book aims to reestablish the idea that time might be something we both have and share, as opposed to something we are always running out of.
