This volume of Lacunae, significantly its twentieth volume, comes together in great part in relation to the theme of trauma. Trauma is a crucial theme and it is one that every clinical practitioner, reader of Freud and Lacan, and socio-cultural theorist engages with at some stage. This volume is marked by trauma in different ways and as such, it is timely. It is published in the middle of the coronavirus global pandemic which cast an inevitable shadow over its production, effecting a delay and an unusual waiting-period for publication. Trauma is also thematically infused in the volume’s content which offers a variety of conceptual, clinical, and cinematic modes of approaching trauma as a defining psychical process and a cultural phenomenon.
