Ad hoc. Psychoanalysis and the Symptom

Psychoanalysis in Our Time Symposium:

Psychoanalysis and the Symptom – Sopot, Poland, from 7th to 9th April 2017

Coordinated by: Dr Agnieszka Piotrowska (Bedfordshire) and Dr Ben Tyrer (Exeter)

 

The symptom is perhaps the vital concept around which psychoanalysis is articulated both as a clinical practice and as a body thought relevant to culture and society.

We welcome submissions for 20-minute papers from artists, academics and clinicians, and would invite different approaches to this subject from, for example, historians, film and literature scholars, or natural scientists with an interest in psychoanalysis.

See the CFP here.

We are very pleased to be able to say that Prof. Elizabeth Cowie – who has devoted most of her working life to interrogating relationships between psychoanalysis and cinema – and Adrian R. Price – practicing analyst, Editor-in-Chief (2010-2013) of Hurly-Burly, The International Lacanian Journal of Psychoanalysis, and translator into English of both Lacan’s Seminar X, Anxiety, and Seminar XXIII, The Sinthome – will be presenting the keynote papers for this event.
