IEA-USP's Humanities and the Contemporary World Research Group will hold the seminar Filiation's Crisis: Subjectivity and Suffering on November 28, at 2 pm (this event has been postponed to February, 2015), at USP's Institute of International Relations (IRI). According to the organizers, the event aims to reflect on "the 'time of agression', which once accelerated prevents the formation of the identity experience in its heterogeneous layers, and of bonds of belonging and memory, replaced by successive traumas in the spectacle of pain according to the markets of advertising and politics."

Exhibitors will be Cynthia A. Sarti and Tales Ab'Sáber, both professors at UNIFESP, and Maria Inês Assumpção Fernandes, a professor at USP's Institute of Psychology. Moderation will be in charge of the research group's coordinator Olgária Matos, a professor of USP's Faculty of Philosophy, Letters and Human Sciences (FFLCH).

Sarti will talk about Memory and Forgetfulness, making a reflection on the role of memories in the establishment of a common shared memory on the threshold between narrative, and psychic healing, trauma and resilience of contemporary politicians.

Filiation's Rupture will be the theme of Fernandes. She will examine the sense of loss of psychic transmission and its consequences in the constitution of subjectivity across generations, allowing family, and symbolic and identity belonging narratives.

Ab'Sáber called his exhibition The Music of Infinite Time. He will discuss the uses of time by the young controlled by the rules of drug consumption and the market in its relations with the processes of depersonalization and unfulfillment both in terms of group performances and celebrations, and in their daily lives.
