NIDA Lacan Study and Reading Group
Date/Time: 25 Sep 2019 - 25 Sep 2019
The Lacan Reading Group gather every month to study Lacan’s principle theories and their application to a broader understanding of texts, art, drama, literature, philosophy, and aesthetics.
In its regular two-hour forums, the group will create a space where the learning, discussion and transmission of Lacan’s works became part of ongoing global scholarly debates. Post-structuralist responses to Lacanian theory, especially by Kristeva, Irigaray, Cixious, Derrida, Foucault, Delueze and Guattary, and Butler (and so on in a multidisciplinary context) are part of the group’s research interest areas. The group is open to all and recommended for postgraduate students across humanities, writers and artists, and academics interested in Lacan and his theories.
The Lacan Reading Group is run by Dr Ehsan Azari, who teaches a postgraduate course for students of Master of Fine Arts (Writing for Performance) at NIDA.
The next meeting witll be on Wednesday 25 September 2019, discussing Barthes Between Literature and Lacan: The Pleasure of the Text.
The next month's date is selected as a group at the end of each lecture which will be published on this page
Tutorial Room 3, NIDA
Attendance is free and open to all with no booking required
