A Psychoanalytic Approach

The Scandal of Civil War

What can psychoanalysis offer to the analysis of civil war? Is there an alternative to the clinic of mourning in such context? And if so, what would the dismantling of the clinic of mourning look like? This panel discussion brings together two contexts, that of Bosnia and Lebanon, in order to consider the questions of civil war and its so-called post-war temporality.


The Scandal of Civil War: A Psychoanalytic Approach is the third conversation of a joint event series on Critical Thought organized by Beirut Institute for Critical Analysis and Research (BICAR), Goethe-Institut Libanon and Rosa-Luxemburg-Foundation (Beirut office).
