The Uncanny – Object a and Anxiety in Freud and Lacan
Exploring the concept of the uncanny in psychoanalysis, beginning with Freud’s 1919 paper and how Lacan later returned to it in elaborating his ideas on anxiety and the object a.
Based on a panel talk I gave at the Museum of the Home in London, September 2022 on ‘The Unhomely: Explorations of Disaspora and Cultural Displacement’, together with artists and curators.
