The Digital Unconscious and Decolonizing Lacan — with Clint Burnham
Play • 42 min
Below the Radar explores Lacanian theory with Lacan Salon President and SFU English Professor Clint Burnham. Clint speaks to how Lacan’s ideas are taken up in the digital age. Clint takes up Lacanian theories of the ‘unconscious,’ ‘extimacy,’ or ‘the split subject,’ as well as Žižek’s works, to unpack racism and microaggressions; intimacy and digital devices; and virtual interactions and teaching in pandemic-times. For this interview, Clint joined Am Johal to film a distanced conversation in the Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre on SFU’s Vancouver campus.
