Lisa Baraitser - Maternal Encounters

Lisa Baraitser - Maternal Encounters

About the show

Responding to the title ‘Bodies of Interruption’ this talk draws on previous work in which she has argued that the particular encounters with others that we could call ‘maternal
encounters’ hold open the potential for a radical form of ethics that runs counter to capitalist modes of productivity, temporality and exchange through their capacity to interrupt or throw us ‘off the subject’.

Lisa Baraitser is Reader in Psychosocial studies at Birkbeck, University of London and a
psychotherapist in independent practice. She is author of the award winning monograph
Maternal Encounters: The Ethics of Interruption (2009) which explores the intersections
between maternal subjectivity and ethics, and A Feeling for Things (Punctum, 2016), a
forthcoming edited collection with Michael O’Rourke on the work of Jane Bennett.
