Lacan, Joyce and Discourse

Panel Presentation with Daniel Bristow, Raul Moncayo & Calum Neill

Facebook Event

This panel will take the form of presentations which will bring into conversation the writing of James Joyce and the thinking of Jacques Lacan in a manner which pushes us to question the ways each can be used to elucidate the other

A starting point for the presentation will be Daniel’s recent article from The Letter, ‘Seminars XVII and XVIII with XXIII: On a University Discourse that might not be Joycean’. You are invited to read this article here.
