Psychoanalytic approaches to the study of social sciences and the humanities are stimulating growing interest in the United Kingdom. This is especially true of the work of Jacques Lacan and the approaches engendered by his ‘return to Freud’. The majority of meetings and conferences, however, tend to be aimed rather more at practicing analysts that at those working in the academic field. Accordingly, Aberystwyth PostInternational Group (APIG) would like to announce a one-day workshop:
Lacan in Context:
Psychoanalysis beyond the clinic
16 November 2002
University of Wales, Aberystwyth
The aim of the workshop is to bring together individuals and groups working with Lacanian theory, in whatever context, in order to promote the free exchange of ideas and encourage further study of Lacan’s work.
Papers on aspects of Lacanian thought, and particularly its application to culture and identity are welcome. This may include, for example, national or organisational identity formation, cultural trauma, or religion as well as the problematic and fecundity of the translation of Lacanian theory onto the postcolonial reading scene. Aspects of which may include Lacanian theory and the intersection of ‘racial’ difference with that of sexual difference.
