ERUPTIONS, DISRUPTIONS AND RETURNS OF THE REPRESSED

WINTER SYMPOSIUM IN HELSINKI 15th to 17th of MARCH 2013

IN COLLABORATION WITH THE FINNISH PSYCHOANALYTIC SOCIETY

PROGRAMME as of January 7th 2013

Venue: House of the Estates, (Säatytalo) Snellmansgatan 9-11

Recent eruptions of conflict, revolt and discontent have been radical and unexpected. The Arab Spring, the UK Riots or the Occupy movement are some examples of these. Furthermore, the recent violent right-wing attacks in Europe exemplify underlying conflict in the contemporary political climate. This symposium raises the questions of how to evaluate and to think about these phenomena. A further question is that of to what extent these events challenge the limits of psychoanalytic conceptualisation.

This is an interdisciplinary conference – we invite theoretical contributions and historical, literary or clinical case studies on these and related themes from philosophers, sociologists, psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, group analysts, literary theorists, historians and others. Perspectives from different psychoanalytic schools will be most welcome.

Therefore, we would like you to attend for the whole symposium, and we will give priority to those who plan to do so. Due to the nature of the forum audio recording is not permitted.

This is a relatively small symposium where active participation is encouraged. Researchers, clinicians, students and others who are interested are invited to attend and present their work in a friendly and enjoyable social atmosphere. A participation fee, which includes two shared dinners, of € 155 – 1155 NOK – 1338 SEK – 1156 DKK – £ 125 – $ 201 – 108 LVL –

PSYCHOANALYSIS AND POLITICS is a conference series that aims to address how crucial contemporary political issues may be fruitfully explored through psychoanalytic theory, and vice versa: how political issues may reflect back on psychoanalytic thinking. The series is interdisciplinary; we invite theoretical contributions and historical, literary or clinical case studies from philosophers, sociologists, psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, group analysts, literary theorists, historians and others. Perspectives from different psychoanalytic schools are most welcome. We emphasise room for discussion among the presenters and participants, thus the symposium series creates a space where representatives of different perspectives come together and engage with one another’s contributions, participating in a community of thought.

The conference fee, which includes lunch and dinner Friday and Saturday, is £ 155. To sign up, please e-mail: moc.liamgnull@scitilop.sisylanaohcysp
