The Department of English invites you to a presentation by English faculty member Dr. Angela Facundo. Dr. Facundo's talk is entitled "Moving Slowly in Love and Hate: Free Association and Empathy in Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant".
Dr. Facundo's talk will take place on March 22nd at 2:30 in Watson 517. This event will also be streamed to Zoom for those that cannot attend in person, and you can register for that stream here
My presentation will engage object relations theory to explore the representation of inhibition in love and hate in Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant. I employ Christopher Bollas’s psychoanalytic writings to draw relationships between free association, objects, and the process of close reading, synthesizing their role in the way humans attach to one another.
