Who the heck is Zizek?

I’m doing a lecture as part of Janice Harding’s Universettee lecture series on 16th April 2007. It is an introduction to the ideas of Slavoj Zizek. Click on the picture of Zizek below for details on how to join us:

The thing that drew me to reading his books initially was wanting to understand his enthusiastic interest in Christianity, despite being a Marxist Psychoanalyst. He says things that should be deeply unpopular, but everyone seems to love it. They’ve made him a kind of Elvis figure. I could save you some tough reading, or perhaps cause you to do some more. Who knows?
