This event is part of CIDRAL's Semester 2 programme for the 2015-16 academic year, themed around Cultures and Temporalities. It is co-organised with the Manchester Psychoanalytic Matrix.
Alvise Sforza Tarabochia will be speaking about Basaglia and Lacan (the topic of his recent book ‘Psychiatry, Subjectivity, Community: Franco Basaglia and Biopolitics') with responses by Daniel Magalhães Goulart (Universidade de Brasilia) and Ian Parker (Manchester Psychoanalytic Matrix).
Franco Basaglia (1924-1980) was an Italian psychiatrist, best remembered for his commitment to the reform of psychiatric institutions and laws in Italy, and a clinical practice that was informed by twentieth-century theory, including the work of existentialist philosophers and Michel Foucault.
Alvise Sforza Tarabochia is Lecturer in Italian Studies at the University of Kent. His research interests include the relationship between continental philosophy and psychiatry and the application of medical humanities in the context of Italian studies.
