1818 E. 12th Street

Austin, TX 78702

6:00 - 9:00 pm

Doors open at 6:00 with live music. 

Event starts at 7:00 pm

Join us for a panel and real-time conversation with Lynne Layton, PhD, a psychoanalyst, President of Division 39, Sec IX's Psychoanalysis and Social Responsibility, and clinical professor at Harvard Medical School, and Robert Oxford, an activist and social anthropologist graduate student in American studies at UT Austin, who will explore the meaning and implications of neoliberal policies.

"Neoliberal democracy....Instead of citizens, it produces consumers. Instead of communities, it produces shopping malls. The net result is an atomized society of disengaged individuals who feel demoralized and socially powerless."

Local contemporary violinist and violin teacher, Andrew Noble, will play live music from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. Come and enjoy the music, snacks, refreshments, and the company of others interested in this topic!
