Talk by Robert Young to discuss the new volume of writings by Frantz Fanon, edited by Jean Khalfa and  the speaker, the first new material by Fanon to be published in over 60 years. Professor Young will argue that its contribution is to place Fanon’s psychiatry at the theoretical centre of his work, enabling a clear connection to be draw between the early work of Black Skin, White Masks (1952), and The Wretched of the Earth (1961). For Fanon, colonialism, like madness, was most meaningfully conceptualized as a destructuration of consciousness and as a pathology of freedom.
