The Study Sessions: Frantz Fanon

Fanon, alienation and freedom by Jean Khalfa

25 Apr 2017

This series of Study Sessions will focus on the work of Frantz Fanon, a psychiatrist and political thinker, with a special focus on his revolutionary psychiatric writings supporting the decolonisation struggles occurring after World War II. More >>

In 2015 Jean Khalfa and Robert Young published with La Découverte a 700-page critical edition of texts by Frantz Fanon that had never been published, or were barely accessible, including two remarkable plays and a significant correspondence. These texts will be published in English by Bloomsbury in 2017. 
 
This event is a keynote lecture where Jean Khalfa will explore how these texts shed a new light on Fanon’s writings on alienation and freedom and reveal his understanding of problems to come, some of which we are experiencing now.
