'Freedom is always freedom for the one who thinks differently' Rosa Luxemburg for our times


A public lecture co-hosted by the Gender Institute and The Ralph Miliband Programme

In this lecture Jacqueline Rose will argue that Rosa Luxemburg's legacy increases in importance by the day, that as a Marxist and woman she can uniquely teach us about the relationship between political struggle and the life of the mind, and that the implications of her thought resonate through the assault on education under the present UK coalition government to the seemingly interminable conflict in the Middle East.

Jacqueline Rose is internationally known for her writing on feminism, psychoanalysis, literature and more recently on the politics and ideology of Israel-Palestine. Her books include, Feminine Sexuality – Jacques Lacan and the école freudienne, which she co-edited with Juliet Mitchell and translated, Sexuality in the Field of Vision (Verso Radical Thinkers), The Haunting of Sylvia Plath, States of Fantasy (the Oxford Clarendon lectures), On Not Being Able to Sleep – Psychoanalysis and the Modern World, The Question of Zion (the Christian Gauss seminars), The Last Resistance and the novel Albertine. Conversations with Jacqueline Rose came out last year. The Jacqueline Rose Reader and Proust Among the Nations – from Dreyfus to the Middle East will be published this year. A regular writer for The London Review of Books, Jacqueline Rose also wrote and presented the 2002 Channel 4 TV Documentary, Dangerous Liaison – Israel and the United States. She is a co-founder of Independent Jewish Voices in the UK and a Fellow of the British Academy. She teaches at Queen Mary University of London.
