Critique of Fantasy

Lecture, 14 May 2019, 20:00

With George Lucas’s Star Wars, we entered the Heimat of blockbusters, which lies in the borderlands of the fantasy and science fiction genres folding out of and staggering a contest that J. R. R. Tolkien inaugurated in the 1930s around his introduction of a new or renewed genre.

The lecture is part of the series Psychoanalytic and Cultural Theory.

Organized by Wilhelm Brüggen (BIPP), Monika Englisch, and Andreas Gehrlach (HU Berlin); a cooperation of the BIPP, the Department of Cultural History and Theory of the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, and the ICI Berlin

Lecture, 23 May 2019, 19:00

The neologism ‘nanoaesthetics’ aims to designate an imaginative force of the small that informs culture at large. To this end, it pursues the signature polarity of the prefix nano, which refers in its mathematical meaning to the hard sciences as well as in its literal sense to fictional discursive worlds.

The lecture is part of the conference Milieus of Minutiae.

Über Brüche in der Theoriebildung

Lecture, 26 May 2019, 11:00

Die Katastrophen des 20. Jahrhunderts mit ihren langen Nachwirkungen können nicht angemessen verstanden werden, ohne die Erfahrungsgeschichte spezifischer Generationen miteinzubeziehen. In seinem Vortrag versucht Werner Bohleber zum Verständnis der psychoanalytischen Theoriebildung in Deutschland nach 1945 beizutragen.
