About Psychoanalysis and Politics
PSYCHOANALYSIS AND POLITICS aims to address how crucial contemporary political issues may be fruitfully analyzed and addressed through psychoanalytic theory. It is an interdisciplinary conference series – we invite theoretical contributions and historical, literary or clinical case studies on these and related themes from philosophers, sociologists, psychoanalysts, group analysts, psychotherapists, literary theorists, historians and others. Perspectives from different psychoanalytic schools are most welcome.
The symposia differ from most conferences in that they are democratic; they make room for presenters at different stages in their careers, and from outside as well as inside academia. They present a space for discussion, with an emphasis on engagement and active participation from everyone who is present. The debates continue during joint meals at the symposia.
Psychoanalysis and Politics is funded by, and forms a part of, NSU, an initiative of The Nordic Ministerial Council, which aims to promote original and interdisciplinary research collaboration between Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, and between these countries and the rest of the world.
