"Instead of making social critique, we are more and more making self critique, sometimes to the point of destruction." Renata Salecl

Renata Salecl is a philosopher and sociologist, who is a senior researcher at the Institute of Criminology at the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana and holds a professorship at Birkbeck College. She is closely associated with the critical legal studies movement, and was awarded the title Slovenian Woman Scientist of the Year by the Slovenian Ministry of Science in 2010. Renata has written books on anxiety, psychoanalysis, postmodernism and love, which have been translated into 15 languages. Her latest book, The Tyranny of Choice explores how late-capitalism's insistence on individuating yourself through personal choices can prevent the possibility of social change. Her forthcoming book A Passion for Ignorance: What We Choose Not to Know and Why will be published by Princeton University Press in 2020.
