NLS Seminar with Sophie Marret-Maleval

The London Society is delighted to announce that on Saturday the 8th of June, we will be holding an NLS Seminar with Professor Sophie Marret-Maleval, who is an AMS of both the New Lacanian School and the École de la Cause Freudienne and the director of the Department of Psychoanalysis, Paris VIII, the department established by Lacan himself in the 1960s.

Our guest will be exploring elements of the clinic of psychosis from the late Lacan and will illustrate her theoretical explorations with a case study involving the theft of painting.

It promises to be an extremely enlightening and enjoyable seminar.

Date: 08 June 2019
Time: 14:30-17:30
Venue: Birkbeck School of Arts, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD

The afternoon seminar will be preceded in the morning by a meeting of our Contemporary Lacanian Clinic, a case-based discussion for clinicians only, in which our guest will act as discussant. Please visit the CLC Page for more details.

Tickets for the afternoon: £20 advance; £25 on the door, students (under 27) £10



The Formation of the Analyst: Analysis, Supervision, Pass
Saturday 29 June 2019

The third in our series of three study days on the Formation of the Analyst with special guest Patricia Tassara (AS). This study day will focus on Supervision.

The Formation of the Analyst

The London Society is delighted to announce that it will be holding the third and final instalment of our series of seminars on The Formation of the Analyst: Analysis, Supervision & Pass on Saturday the 29th of June, with special guest Patricia Tassara from our sister School in Spain, the Escuela Lacaniana de Psicoanálisis del Campo Freudiano.

On this occasion we will be focusing on the role that supervision plays in the formation of the analyst and exploring some of the aspects that single out Lacan’s treatment of the question of supervision – which he preferred to speak of as a 'super-audition’ – from other more didactic approaches. Indeed, as Jacques-Alain Miller says in The Analysts’ Symposium: “Supervision has no value if it limits itself to regulating the relation that analysts in formation have to their patients. Supervision is worth nothing unless it is pursued beyond this to encompass their relation to psychoanalysis as such.”

For this event, we will be joined by Patricia Tassara, who many will remember from the Pass Testimony she gave in London, almost exactly one year ago, following her nomination as Analyst of the School (AS).

The event will be split into two parts. The first part will feature short presentations from Sophia Berouka, Philip Dravers, and Janet Haney, with a short period for the discussion of each paper. This will be followed by a keynote address by our invited guest. Further details to follow.

Tickets: £20 in advance, £25 on the door, (£10 for Students under 27)

Venue: Birkbeck School of Arts, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD

We look forward to seeing you there.
