Richard B. Keys is a writer and psychoanalyst-in-training whose work operates at the intersection of the psychoanalytic clinic, cultural theory, and critical pedagogy. He is interested in the unique capacity of psychoanalysis as a mode of thought, writing, and speech that cuts across social, political, and psychic registers. His writing has been published by Stillpoint (USA), Counterfutures (NZ), Plates (US/NZ), Identities (MK), and &&& (US/DE) among other perdiodicals. He is based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa New Zealand, where he operates a socially engaged private practice and sees patients both locally and internationally.
