Laboratory for Lacanian Politics – Workshop & Launch
Saturday, 10 March 2018

Laboratory for Lacanian Politics ­ Workshop

The fourth in our series of seminars exploring the lures and logic of democracy in our contemporary world will coincide with the launch of the next issue of the Psychoanalytical Notebooks, a special issue devoted to "Lacanian Politics". Articles from this issue will be discussed and introduced by the editors and translators and this will give way to a broader round-table discussion of its main themes. It should provoke some lively discussion and if all goes to plan it will be possible to buy a copy of the relevant issue of the Psychoanalytical Notebooks at the event.

Please go to The Laboratory page to access the argument for the series and to book tickets for this event.
