University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies


The Centre for Gender Studies hosted an event to mark the launch of Professor Juliet Mitchell's latest book Fratriarchy: The Sibling Trauma and the Law of the Mother (Routledge, 2023) on Tuesday 2 May 2023 at Keynes Hall, King’s College. Professor Juliet Mitchell, Professor of Psychoanalysis and Gender Studies and Emeritus Fellow of Jesus College; Professorial Research Associate, UCL, was in conversation with Dr Holly Porter, Deputy Director, UCCGS. The event was followed by a lunch reception in the Chetwynd Rooms. 

In Fratriarchy, Juliet Mitchell expands her ground-breaking theories on the sibling trauma and the Law of the Mother. Writing as a psychoanalytic practitioner, she shows what happens from the ground up when we use feminist questions to probe the psycho-social world and its lateral relations.
