“What about racism today?”, with special guest Marie-Hélène Brousse

London Society Special Preparatory Event Towards PIPOL 11, with Marie-Hélène Brousse

The 7th European Congress of Psychoanalysis will take place in Brussels, on 1 & 2 July 2023. Its theme: Clinic and Critique of Patriarchy

As early as 1968, Lacan proclaimed that “we could classify the mark, the scar left by the father’s disappearance under the heading and general notion of segregation”. That even though “our civilisation’s universalism and communication” purports to “standardise relations” for Lacan this produces “a complex, reinforced and constantly overlapping form of segregation that only manages to generate more and more barriers.” [1]

For our preparatory work towards PIPOL11, we are pleased to announce a special event with Marie-Hélène Brousse, psychoanalyst, member of the ECF, NLS and of the World Association of Psychoanalysis, who will be elaborating on new modes of racism today.

We look forward to seeing you there.

The deadline for submission of clinical texts for PIPOL is 8th April
