Journal Psychoanalysis, Culture & Society (no. 4 2015) contains a special section on the conference series Psychoanalysis and Politics

We are very happy to announce that the new issue of the journal Psychoanalysis, Culture & Society (no. 4 2015) contains a special section on the conference series Psychoanalysis and Politics with an introduction by Lene Auestad and with these three articles;

– Amal Treacher Kabesh: Political upheaval in Egypt: Disavowing troubling states of mind
– Jay Frankel: The traumatic basis for the resurgence of right-wing politics among working Americans
– Lene Auestad: Basic trust and alienation, or “we have nothing to reproach ourselves with”
The short introduction to the special section provides an account of the aims and format of the conference series.
If your library has not got the journal, it would be a good idea to encourage your librarian to include it in their collection.
More on other things to follow later. The deadline for sending abstracts to next year’s Psychoanalysis and Politics conference at the Sigmund Freud University in Vienna, entitled Solidarity and Alienation – Social Structures of Hope and Despair is December 5th, and the conference is May 6th-8th 2016.
We will respond by, and present a programme on December 15th 2015. If you wish to sign up to participate in the discussions without presenting a paper, feel free to get in touch after December 15th.
With best wishes,
Lene Auestad and Jonathan Davidoff
Coordinators, Psychoanalysis and Politics.
