Christina Nadler is a social theorist, educator, and psychoanalytic candidate who holds a PhD from the Sociology Program at The Graduate Center, CUNY. She is currently training at the Psychoanalytic Training Institute of the Contemporary Freudian Society and the Anni Bergman Parent-Infant Training Program.
Her scholarly work draws from psychoanalysis, environmental studies, animal studies, settler colonial studies, and critical race theory, but is grounded in a sociological perspective that is always engaged with inequality and social justice. In her dissertation, “Denial: A Sociological Theory,” she argues that denial is a structural condition of US society. She brings together different levels of sociological analysis to show the complex and layered ways society participates in and produces denial. Her future research will investigate the connections between psychoanalysis and climate change.
