Join Dr. Orna Guralnik, “the therapist remaking our love lives on TV” (The New Yorker), and author Maggie Nelson (The Argonauts), for a conversation on how class, race, and gender shape our most intimate relationships.

A significant figure in the world of psychology, Dr. Orna Guralnik has become well-recognized outside academia and psychoanalytic circles as host of Showtime’s Couples Therapy. On screen and off, Dr. Guralnik uses her expertise to show countless couples how therapy can improve their emotional intelligence, ability to listen, and power to change. Dr. Guralnik lectures and publishes on trans-generational trauma, the ideology and culture of psychoanalysis, and couples treatment. She is a professor at NYU and sits on the editorial boards of Psychoanalytic Dialogues and Studies in Gender & Sexuality.

The author of nine books, Maggie Nelson is a celebrated poet, essayist, and literary critic. Nelson’s forthcoming collection of essays and conversations, Like Love, cements her as a key contemporary thinker, exploring queer love and friendship, sex symbols like Prince, and how time alters desire.
