8 December 2021, 17:00 GMT
Centre for Research in Economic Sociology and Innovation and Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex
Join the Centre for Research in Economic Sociology and Innovation and Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies in conversation with Dr Shaul Bar-Haim: The Maternalists: Psychoanalysis, Motherhood and the British Welfare State.
The Maternalists is a study of the hitherto unexplored significance of utopian visions of the state as a maternal entity in mid-twentieth century Britain. Demonstrating the affinities between welfarism, maternalism, and psychoanalysis, Shaul Bar-Haim suggests a new reading of the British welfare state as a political project.
