Revenge: Fantasies and Reality

January 20, 2022 at 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


Join Clare Gustavsson and Alison Taylor to explore the cultural, personal, and political dimensions of revenge.


“Revenge is a confession of pain” —Latin Proverb

“Revenge is sweet and not fattening” —Alfred Hitchcock


  • What do we seek when we dream of revenge?
  • What do our fantasies of revenge tell us about ourselves?
  • When is revenge justified?
  • Can taking revenge bring satisfaction?
  • What about our collective fantasies of revenge?
  • Why do they pervade society and politics today?


Please watch (or refresh your memory) of one of the following movies: Promising Young Woman, Animal House, Nine to Five, Carrie, Sweeney Todd, The Joker, Pulp Fiction, The Godfather, Fatal Attraction.

See you there!
