Fratriarchy and Sisterhood: Shakespeare and Psychoanalysis
Online Lecture, 17 Jan 2023, 20:00
Simone de Beauvoir considered that fratriarchy could bring about the liberation of women; feminism’s politicization of ‘sisterhood’ has revealed that this is far from the case. Freud’s Totem and Taboo can be re-examined to understand the sibling origin of the sexual violence of social brothers against social sisters.
