Wednesday, October 16, 2019: 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

TPS Scientific Meeting: Open to all.

Freud in Cambridge came out in 2017. Freud never went to Cambridge: our book’s title was intended to provoke. However, Freud in Cambridge takes a measure of the ways in which a set of Freudian ideas about the workings of the human mind, about the unconscious and sexuality, impacted on men, women and children in this place during the early 20th century, and shaped thinking across a range of disciplines from anthropology to psychology, from philosophy, to literature, education and ecology. This illustrated talk retraces a number of key Cambridge sites for psychoanalytic education and encounter in 1920s England. It also touches on the eighteen year-long process of working with its first author, the much-missed John Forrester. The talk will be followed by a discussion with Dr. Oren Gozlan and Dr. Deborah Britzman.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the meeting participants will be able to:

  1. Describe Freud’s diverse impacts on a multiplicity of disciplines.
  2. Recognize the broad value of the case study method.
  3. Illustrate through institutional history how Freudians have been both made and unmade.
