The Laboratory for Lacanian Politics

Workshop – Saturday 10th March 2018
Lacanian Politics and the Impasses of Democracy Today

The latest issue of the Psychoanalytical Notebooks is due for publication at the beginning of March under the theme: "Lacanian Politics and the Impasses of Democracy Today".

This issue will make available in English for the first time a collection of selected texts and articles at the forefront of defining the stakes of Lacanian psychoanalysis in the contemporary political field.

To celebrate this publication, the Laboratory for Lacanian Politics will be hosting a workshop on the afternoon of Saturday 10th March.

We will be welcoming a range of speakers involved in the production of this issue to present extracts from these texts and to highlight some of the key themes for discussion.

Speakers include Bogdan Wolf, Roger Litten, Philip Dravers, and Janet Haney, Regional Representative of the Euro-Federation of Psychoanalysis.

We are also pleased to announce the participation of Adrian Price, English translator of the Seminars of Lacan, including most recently Seminar X on Anxiety and Seminar XXIII, The Sinthome.

He will be presenting material from his current work on Lacan's Seminar XIX "... ou pire" under the theme "Brotherhood and Segregation".

The workshop setting promises to provide the platform for yet another engaging and stimulating discussion within the framework of the Laboratory.

We invite your participation in this important work.
