The Study Sessions

Frantz Fanon

21 Feb 2017 - 25 Apr 2017

Frantz Fanon (1925-1961) was a psychiatrist, an ethno-psychiatrist and a revolutionary political thinker, one of the few supporting the decolonisation struggles occurring after World War II. At the same time as he theorised and fought colonialism as violence and alienation, he produced and practiced an innovative form of psychiatry to deal with mental alienation. Fanon remains among the most widely read and influential of these voices today.

This series of Study Sessions will focus on the work of Frantz Fanon, with a special focus on his psychiatric writings that are currently being translated. Tracing the development of his writings helps explain how and why he has become an inspirational figure.
