Below the Radar Episode 17. May 22, 2019

Episode 17 features Hilda Fernandez, a clinical psychoanalyst and a grad student at SFU. Hilda was also the former president of the Lacan Salon, a group that meets bi-weekly to read and discuss the work of Freud and Jacques Lacan. On this episode, she talks to Am Johal about love and desire from a psychoanalytical perspective — the stages of love, how it is sustained and reinvented, and break-ups and the hatred that can come along with it.

The Lacan Salon meets every other Tuesday from 7-9 PM in room 2205 at SFU’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts. It welcomes participants from all academic disciplines and levels of experience. For more information, please visit their website:
