Event description

Film screenings and panel discussion

Speakers: Professor Stephen Frosh, Birkbeck, University of London, Professor Catherine Hall, University College London, Professor Daniel Pick, Birkbeck, University of London and Professor Philippe Sands QC, University College London.

The Pears Institute explores, through two powerful documentaries, the ways individuals and generations deal with the discovery of uncomfortable family truths - the past actions of parents and grandparents; and the challenge of confronting them.

The films will be shown back to back with a break for lunch. You may come for the whole day, to either film screening (morning or afternoon), or join us for the final panel discussion that follows. See below for details:

  • 10.45 - 12.25 Film screening: My Nazi Legacy

  • 12.30 - 1.15 Discussion with Philippe Sands

  • 1.15 - 2.15 Lunch

  • 2.15 - 4.00 Film screening: The Flat

  • 4.15 - 5.30 Panel discussion about both films

About the speakers: Stephen Frosh is a specialist on the social and cultural applications of psychoanalytic theory, considering gender, identity, otherness and racist hate; Catherine Hall is a feminist cultural and social historian whose most recent work has been on the impact and legacy of slavery in modern Britain; and Daniel Pick is a cultural and intellectual historian and psychoanalyst, with a particular interest in the history of thought about Nazism and psychology.
