    This paper is concerned with how boundaries and exclusions are made and can be overcome. The pre-recorded lecture addresses the issue of the relationship between antisemitism and antiblack racism as seen through the prism of psychoanalysis. For Jews, psychoanalysis has been a kind of ‘home’: familiar, sharing in certain assumptions and practices, but also marginal, subjected to prejudice and antisemitism and consequently not (exactly) ‘white’. For black communities, psychoanalysis has often been pathologising and colonial, yet also at times emancipatory either as a practice of socially reformist mental health intervention or as a set of concepts that offer potential leverage for self-emancipation.
