Event description

Description

This lecture will focus on Dr. Eng’s recently published book, Racial Melancholia, Racial Dissociation: On the Social and Psychic Lives of Asian Americans, co-authored with psychotherapist Shinhee Han, LCSW, Ph.D. Dr. Eng will draw on case histories from the mid-1990s to the present to explore the social and psychic predicaments of Asian American adults from Generation X to Generation Y. Combining critical race theory with several strands of psychoanalytic thought and clinical practice, he will develop the concepts ​of “racial melancholia” and “racial dissociation” to investigate changing processes of loss associated with immigration, displacement, diaspora, and assimilation.
