THE ROOTS OF PREJUDICE
Day Conference at The Anna Freud Centre
We all experience the impulse to be prejudiced as one of the inevitable consequences of developing a ‘sense of self’. Forged within primary relationships, our sense of ‘who we are’ is always emotionally loaded and involves ambivalent relationships with ‘others’.
The resurgence of malignant forms of prejudice in which hate and hostility are directed towards specific groups, reality distorted and sadism justified, brings a new sense of urgency to understand the universal propensity. This conference addresses contemporary manifestations of various forms of prejudice with perspectives on their unconscious dynamics.
Speakers and Titles
Prejudice as Socially Unconscious
The Logic of an Illusion
Prejudice as Ideology: The creation of ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ groups in society – and psychoanalysis.
