Laboratory for Lacanian Politics 2017-2018
Saturday, 12 May 2018

Laboratory for Lacanian Politics ­ Workshop

In this fifth seminar of our current series, the Laboratory will be preparing the way towards a special event organised in collaboration with the Freud Museum and The Lacanian Review (an English language journal of the NLS and the WAP) – namely, a marathon reading of the entire text of Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego,which will take place in Freud's house in Hampstead, some 80 years after he was forced to move here with his family, from Vienna, in order to escape persecution by the Nazis. The seminar will introduce the text and its continuing importance to the politics of our time, while situating the event within the context of the continuing work of the Laboratory and Lacanian Action more generally.

Please go to The Laboratory page for further details about this special and unique event.
