U.S. ambivalence about torture:
an analysis of post-9/11 films

 

Jean Rahbar

Jean Rahbar recently graduated from the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis with her doctoral degree in a unique cross-disciplinary program titled Psychoanalysis and Culture. She is also a graduate of Cornell University in a major called Design and Environmental Analysis and has also been writing about the intersection between the physical environment and the perception of space for Form Z, a peer reviewed journal that instigates meaningful applications of their 3D modeling software. Her primary research interests are about the psychological intersection and the mechanisms individuals use between the perception of the world around them versus the reality. Her research on torture delves further into the perception of U.S. beliefs about torture when confronted about the realities of U.S. involvement in torture.
