May 26, 2023 — Decolonization and Psychoanalytic Humility
Tummala-Narra considers how psychoanalytic concepts, such as ideas about dependency, that were formed in a particular socio-historical context, act to privilege a white, European subjectivity. She notes how failing to acknowledge these limitations can perpetuate oppression and calls for “psychoanalytic humility” as a basis for decolonizing theory and practice.
