The Jackman Humanities Institute invites you to

A Celebration of the Life of Elisabeth Young-Bruehl, 1946-2011

22 April 2012 at 2:00 p.m.

Hart House Debates Room

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl was widely renowned and deeply respected as a philosopher, psychoanalyst, academic, and prolific writer. Her publications include prize-winning biographies of Hannah Arendt and Anna Freud, as well as her latest book, Childism: Confronting Prejudice against Children (Yale UP, 2012).  Her interest in childhood development led her to be actively involved in issues of social justice, as expressed in her blog Who's Afraid of Social Democracy?, and she was also deeply immersed in her new project as General Editor of the Collected Writings of D.W. Winnicott.  Elisabeth's passion for life, friendship, her generosity, and her gifted mind are very much missed.
