Susie Orbach Lecture: ‘Frankenstein’s Bodies Today’

The Richard Price Annual Memorial Lecture ~ Unitarian Church, Newington Green N16

Frankenstein’s Bodies Today

The annual lecture will be given by the influential author and psychoanalyst Professor Susie Orbach. The title of the lecture links Orbach’s sphere of work, the Unitarian Church and one of the famous members of its congregation, Mary Wollstonecraft – author, early feminist and mother of Mary Shelley, the author of ‘Frankenstein’.

Susie Orbach co-founded the Women’s Therapy Centre in North London and has written a number of books exploring issues such as gender, women’s psychology and eating difficulties. Orbach is well known for her first book, ‘Fat is a Feminist Issue’ (1978) and her latest book is ‘Bodies’ (2009).

If you are interested in the Alexander Technique you are probably interested in your own body and you may find it revealing and informative to learn more about our society’s attitudes towards our bodies. Susie Orbach’s lecture promises to be a fascinating evening and well worth attending.
