New York University School of Law Greenberg Lounge at Vanderbilt Hall 40 Washington Square South, NYC
The program will commence at 2:30 pm, and will be followed by light refreshments.
Elisabeth Young-Bruehl, a longtime Fellow of the New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU, was widely known and respected as a philosopher, psychoanalyst, biographer, and scholar. She authored over a dozen books, including seminal biographies of Hannah Arendt and Anna Freud; Why Arendt Matters; The Anatomy of Prejudices; Subject to Biography: Psychoanalysis, Feminism, and Writing Womens' Lives; Where Do We Fall When We Fall in Love?; and most recently, Childism: Confronting Prejudice Against Children (Yale Univ. Press, 2012). Formerly on the faculty of the Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, she was a member of the Toronto Psychoanalytic Society and a co-founder of Caversham Productions, a company that creates psychoanalytic educational materials. Elisabeth wrote about current events and contemporary political issues on her blog, Who's Afraid of Social Democracy?, and had recently been named General Editor of The Collected Writings of D.W. Winnicott, a project that had fully engaged her ever-fierce intellect. On November 18, 2011, she gave a lunch-talk at the Institute that traced her intellectual trajectory from The Anatomy of Prejudices to Childism, through to the writings of Winnicott (this talk appears as her last blog post, under the title "Creative Aggression"). Elisabeth's passion and commitment--as a thinker, as a writer, as a friend--are deeply missed.
