Critical Race Theory (CRT) does not call us racists; but we are not yet off the hook. The racist policies and structures which we inherited and recreate are part of our national inheritance. When the shame experienced on either side of the racial divide is defended against, then anger, fear, tension, and rage only increase. Contemporary psychoanalytic writers have begun to explore ways in which this shame can be turned into “generative shame” and thus enable us to work toward repair and reconciliation. With deference to Mary Watkins’ 2016 paper (“The social and political life of shame in the U.S. presidential election 2016”), we will explore these themes in Lynne Layton’s 2017 paper, “On Lying and Disillusionment,” and Sue Grand’s 2018 paper, “The Other Within: White Shame, Native-American Genocide.”
Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Define Critical Race Theory (CRT).
– Describe structural and systemic racism.
– Discuss structural racism in the enslavement of African Americans and the genocide of Native Americans.
– Explain generative shame and its use in working through this past.
