LS2 Seminar – Stirred by Transference
Saturday, 18th November 2018, 2-5pm (Senate House)

LS2 Seminar – Stirred by Transference

On the 18th of November, we will begin our series of LS2 Seminars, led and animated by members of the London Society. Our first event will be divided into two parts. Part one will feature an elaboration of the theme of transference by Vincent Dachy in the form of a presentation interspersed with and followed by discussion. This will be followed by the first of a series of Fundamental Readings on Transference, involving a brief commentary of a key text or texts followed by discussion with one or more member of the London Society. The purpose of such fundamental readings (a 'rubric' we have borrowed from the cartels) is not to provide an exhaustive commentary, but rather to draw designated texts into our work for the year so that we hold them in common in our ongoing work in a way that supports discussion. The audience is invited to contribute to this seminar with their own prior reading and preparation. On this occasion, we will be exploring how the theme of transference is taken up by Freud in his Papers on Technique, with particular emphasis on "The Dynamics of Transference" and "Remembering, Repeating and Working-Through".

Venue: The Gordon Room, Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1 7HU

Tickets £15 in advance, £20 on the door
