Human Development as ‘Resistance’

Lois Holzman will travel to the central Mexican city of Morelia to participate in the 2nd Marxism and Psychology Conference, August 9-11.  She will be a discussant at two plenary sessions: Marxism, Subjectivity and Cultural-Historical Psychology, and Psychology, Marxism and New Forms of Collective Action.  Holzman will also present at a symposium, From Critical to Practical-Critical Psychology: Activating and Developing People and Community in Brazil, Mexico and the United States, alongside talented community educators Wellington de Oliveira (São Paulo) and Miguel Cortés, Mariana Loya and Jorge Burciaga (Juárez).

It’s our opportunity to bring human development as a new form of “resistance” into the dialogue about how psychology can contribute to revolutionary change, says Holzman.
