This pre-conference will be on the subject of misogyny, examining this process across and within genders, as a backdrop to sexual harassment and as a component of the reactivity to the #MeToo movement. In thinking about gender and sexuality in the context of misogyny, we will be watching for the complexity of these experiences both from a psychoanalytic lens and with an eye to the concept of ‘intersectionality.’ In thinking of identity intersectionality, we pay attention to the conflict across marginalized groups, asking how misogyny differs and becomes more contested and complex when we consider matters of race, of class and culture. Clinical and literary/cinematic examples will be used.
