Sex, psychoanalysis and the private life: Josh Cohen in conversation with Devorah Baum at The Societ
Granta returns to London's most elegant bookshop and cocktail bar to discuss sex, psychoanalysis and the private life.
Following the recent leak of celebrity nude photos, privacy has become increasingly under threat. Our most private selves are stolen and revealed by hackers and shared with strangers on social media - no part of our lives is protected from exposure. But what exactly are we searching for and what are we hiding?
Josh Cohen, author of The Private Life, and Devorah Baum discuss this recent attack on privacy through psychoanalytic theories on sexuality and selfhood, drawing on an array of topical news stories from the leaking of nude photos of celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and Rihanna through to those who choose to share their private lives.
Admission is free, but numbers are limited. Please RSVP to email@example.com
