Previous Events



(October 14-16, 2022, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh)

The Lacan: Clinic & Culture Conference will focus on the relevance of Lacanian psychoanalysis to contemporary clinical work and culture. Questions of psychosis, trauma, the body, and clinical technique are critical sites of dialogue in clinical work. Today, race, politics, sexuality, and institutionalized mental health treatment are at the forefront of cultural issues. Such topics influence each other in the intersection of the cultural field and clinical practice.

Hosting some of the world’s foremost experts on Lacanian psychoanalysis, the conference will explore the applicability of Lacanian thought and practice in today’s clinic, culture, and their intersection. To highlight the field’s accessibility and relevance, a series of educational seminars and workshops re-visiting, critiquing, and applying key concepts will also be offered.

Film Screening and Q&A with the movie director on Zoom

“With realistic acumen and artistic expertise, ADIEU LACAN portrays the struggles of a young woman, Seriema, who is trying to understand why her path to motherhood has reached an unbearable impasse. Following two miscarriages and the possible loss of her marriage, Seriema travels to Paris in 1972 to undergo psychoanalytic treatment with the maverick French analyst, Jacques Lacan. Her analysis is an attempt to help her to disentangle the enigma of her question: why has motherhood become a seeming impossibility? Inspired by the story of Betty Milan, a Brazilian psychoanalyst and writer, it follows closely her own actual psychoanalysis with Lacan. Based on two books, Goodbye Doctor and Lacan’s Parrot, in which Milan recounts her analytic work, Adieu Lacan offers an insightful and accurate account of an actual psychoanalytic cure.” – Mavis Himes, Psychoanalyst and author of “The Power of Names.

CfP IN ANALYSIS from Eve Watson

For details:

In social and political science, propaganda can be characterized as a psychological action using all means of information to propagate a doctrine, create a movement of opinion and provoke a decision (source: National Center for Textual and Lexical Resources). Propaganda seeks to convince rather than inform, campaigning to influence a person or an authority, disseminating a message to a targeted audience. It mainly relates to politics, power and counter-power dynamics. In 1967, Theodor Adorno in The New Right-wing Extremism characterized it as an extreme perfection of rational means serving irrational ends. Traditionally, propaganda differs from advertising campaigns and has no lucrative purpose.

How can we relate to this definition of Th. Adorno's propaganda more than fifty years later? Does this nuance between market value and political stakes still hold in our current society, where networks of influence are becoming more complex? As Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky (1988) make explicit in their model of propaganda, where the boundary between power dynamics and economic stakes merge, are we facing a propaganda that redefines its terms and techniques? Moreover, what would be the purposes of today's propaganda?

A "Cambridge Analytica » data scandal, for example, shook the referendum on Brexit and the 2016 US presidential election and influenced local politics in 68 countries (Cadwalladr, 2020). This private company used the "likes" of the users of the digital platform Facebook to draw up their psychological profile and resell this data to campaign managers. On this basis, using the company's services, the latter could offer targeted content on the users' news feed. These people were unknowingly influenced by these videos and dispatches that appeared side by side with the publications of their family and friends.

David Colon (2019) speaks of "total propaganda" in the age of social networks, algorithms, trolls. The war of (dis)information(s) through the intoxication of the adversary, fake news, hacking of presidential elections makes any scientific analysis of the observed facts obsolete. The most worrying manifest effects of this propaganda would be the modification of behaviors (Shoshana Zouboff, 2019) and the polarization of emotions generating likes (Giuliano da Empoli, 2019), as well as an explosion of populist movements imposing leaders like Trump, Bolsonaro, Johnson, Orban, Salvini, etc.

Critical studies (of the media in particular, as the main propaganda agent) focus on the psychological effects of propaganda, a notion that has become taboo in academic circles, as Zollmann (2017) points out.

Sociology and cognitive psychology (Bronner, 2013; Lewandowsky et al., 2017) have begun to reflect on the confirmation biases intrinsic to this new propaganda within the era of social networks. Serge Tchakhotine (1952) used the terms of "crowd rape" and "psychological rape" to expose the conditioned Pavlovian reflexes carefully studied by propaganda institutes created by governments from the 1930s onwards and employing psychologists, psychoanalysts, anthropologists, etc. (Colon, 2019). Can today's "neuromarketing" be considered as an heir to this use of science to influence the masses? Can contemporary propaganda be thought of from the angle of psycho-power or neuro-power, with nudging infiltrating the communication techniques of leaders? This calls for a new analysis of the contemporary articulation between the individual, the collective and the meta-framework of power. In what way is the governmentality (Foucault, 1978) of our time influenced by a new approach to scientificity, turned towards risk prevention (Beck, 2007) and the management of behaviours (Curtis, 2016)? In what way, too, can this biopolitical society (Foucault, 1978) be turned into a culture, or even a cult, of ignorance (Girel, 2017)? The propaganda of our time, which this issue proposes to explore, involves thinking about conspiracy theories and other techniques currently in use. It is also fundamental to question the instances from which these alternative facts and distortions of information emanate, where the limits of true and false, fiction and reality seem to be fading away.

Theodor Adorno thought it was in the service of "end-of-the-world fantasies" (1067, p. 26). For him, it was above all a matter of mass psychology.

Propaganda as an environmental agent with major unconscious influences has not yet been the subject of psychoanalytical studies as such. Psychoanalysts, starting with Freud, have, however, informed the development of propaganda strategies. The latter, from his analyses of social facts, in the works Psychology of the Masses and Analysis of the Ego, Civilization and its discontent and Future of an Illusion, laid the groundwork for a psychology of the masses and a psychoanalysis of the renunciation of instinct inherent in all civilizational work. Several authors after him (Zaltzman, Janin, Kaes, Rouchy, Stenger, to name but a few) have led major reflections on the vicissitudes of the work of civilization according to periods and cultures.

Psychoanalysis has precious keys to think, together with the social and political sciences, about this evolving phenomenon, to identify its effects on the subject, but also on the reciprocal alterations of the individual and of the forms of organization of the collective that can be understood through the analysis of these systems of influence. With psychoanalysis, can we think of propaganda as a dream work or a political symptom of our globalized social group? In what then, do the contours of current propaganda inform us about the state of our political system and the major psychic organizers of our post-modern social group?

This issue proposes to think, always in the transdisciplinary dialogue that characterizes us, about the renewed forms of propaganda in our post-modern society. How can we characterize these new influencing techniques? Is it an evolution of old modes of influence or a technical revolution that is disrupting individual psychic economies? What are the effects, moreover, of this renewed propaganda in terms of the mutation of subjectivities and subjective positioning? How has the propaganda of hatred, fear, consumption (the other hydra of the contemporary world) influenced the subject of the environmental crisis, which is also a subject of economic warfare? And how could we approach, in the clinic, its unconscious effects combined with the effects of early experiences?

It is on the basis of these various, non-exhaustive questionings that we propose to open the reflection on this phenomenon of contemporary propaganda, for the purpose of analyzing the state of the Socius today as well as to draw the contours of a clinic of the individual and the post-modern social group.

CfP “Remapping desire: bringing back sex within geographies of sexualities”

Guest editors: Cesare Di Feliciantonio (Manchester Metropolitan University) & Valerie De Craene (Ghent University)

Rationale and description

Mapping Desire – a milestone text in the field of geographies of sexualities- was published 25 years ago. Since then, geographies of sexualities has grown as a relevant sub-discipline, gaining institutional recognition in terms of dedicated research groups within national geographical societies (e.g. AAG, RGS), large transnational conferences (e.g. the European Geographies of Sexualities Conference held biyearly), the publication of handbooks (e.g. Brown & Browne, 2016), research funding and career progression for the main names in the field. Despite the hegemony of Anglo-American scholarship in this field (Silva & Ornat, 2016), there has been a proliferation of studies in other contexts, such as Brazil and Latin America more generally (Silva & Vieira, 2014).

Within the growing field of geographies of sexualities, the main themes have been identity, citizenship and activism (e.g. Binnie & Valentine, 1999; Bonner-Thompson et al, 2020; G. Brown & Browne, 2016; M. Brown, 2012, 2014; Browne, Lim & Brown, 2007; Johnston, 2016, 2017). Despite some notable exceptions (Bain & Nash, 2006; Bonner-Thompson, 2017; G. Brown, 2008; Di Feliciantonio & Gadelha, 2017; Gurney, 2000; Langarita, 2019; Misgav & Johnston, 2014; Sanders-McDonagh, 2017), the engagement with the materiality of sexual practices has remained limited (Bell, 2007; Binnie, 1997, G. Brown, Browne & Lim, 2011), confirming a certain squeamishness around sex and sexuality within our society (Rubin, 1993), as well as within academia (Bell, 1995, 2007; Binnie, 1997; De Craene, 2017, 2020). Building on Binnie’s considerations (1997, 1998) about geographers pushing the boundaries of what constitutes ‘acceptable’ knowledge and scholarship against the increasing disembodiment of queer and feminist epistemologies, this special issue aims to engage with the materiality of bodies, senses, fluids and the relevance of ‘assemblages’ (Nash & Gorman-Murray, 2017; Race, 2018), atmospheres and the more-than-human in order to bring back sex within geographies of sexualities.

Suggested themes include, but are not limited to:

- the role of place in feeling, practicing and understanding sex;

- the sexualization of home as related to the current Covid-19 pandemic and, more generally, to the increasing use of hook-up apps;

- porn and the sexual construction of place, class and race;

- place, sexual practices and intersectionality;

- the sexual practices of older people and their relation to space and place;

- the tensions between physical spaces, digital spaces and sexual practices;

- the geographies of trans and non binary people’s sexual practices;

- the geographies of asexuality;

- geographies of sex beyond the metropolis;

- emerging geographies of sex in the Global South;

- the spatial configuration of heteronormative and homonormative sexual practices;

- the role of bodies, senses and fluids in sexual assemblages;

- the cultural meanings of sexual practices and their relation to space and place;

- cruising online and offline;

- the relation between mobilities and the geographies of particular sexual practices;

- the intersections of sexual practices and new biomedical technologies.

We aim to submit the special issue proposal (including accepted abstracts) to either Gender, Place & Culture or Social & Cultural Geography. However, should it be unsuccessful we would work with authors to find a suitable editorial destination.

Potential contributors should send an abstract of up to 250 words to and by 10th December 2020. Please include with your response details of authors’ institutional affiliation(s), contact details and brief bios.

In recent years the contours of a hitherto unexpected theoretical interface has emerged: Islam and/with psychoanalysis. Why bring this seemingly odd couple together? What kinds of theoretical insights could be gained in this crossing of wires? This roundtable panel discussions hopes to stage a provocative yet mutually productive encounter between facets of Islam and psychoanalytic theory, whereby both can mutually illuminate and enrich each other — in a short-circuiting way.

Participants include: Dr. Laura U. Marks (SFU), Dr. Dina al-Kasim (UBC), Dr. Clint Burnham (SFU), and Dr. Farshid Kazemi (SFU). .

There will be a short Q&A after the roundtable and refreshments will be offered.

Talk: Clint Burnham on Evan Lee's Fugazi

Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 2PM

Teck Gallery, Vancouver

515 West Hastings Street

Speaking in response to Evan Lee's Fugazi, an installation in the Teck Gallery that queries how value is socially constructed, Clint Burnham will approach the idea of "fugazi" – a signifier of what is fake – in terms of looking, capitalism and our relationship to the land we occupy. Reading Lee's work through his book Fredric Jameson and The Wolf of Wall Street (Bloomsbury, 2016), Burnham will consider how the term fugazi functions in the 2013 Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street and its connection to Marxist theories of immaterial labour.

Clint Burnham is a Vancouver based writer. He is the author of book-length studies of Steve McCaffery and Fredric Jameson. He is also the author of numerous books of poetry and fiction, and has written widely on art. He teaches at Simon Fraser University on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, Musqueam, and Kwikwetlem Nations.

Reading Group: What Is Structuralism?

Meeting 1: Piaget- "Structuralism"

Saturday May 4th


Or Gallery

555 Hamilton Street, Vancouver

What Is Structuralism? is a monthly reading group into the history and philosophy of structuralism, from foundations to contemporary developments.

For our first meeting we are reading the Introduction and Conclusion to Jean Piaget's 1968 book "Structuralism". In this text, Piaget introduces structuralism as a unifying framework for psychology, mathematics, psychoanalysis, linguistics, physics, biology, sociology, anthropology and philosophy, relating the varying programs of Saussure, Lacan, Levi-Strauss, Bourbaki, Foucault and others to the central ideas of wholeness, transformation and self regulation.

Lacan’s Écrits Conference 2019

11 – 13 October 2019

Duquesne University, Pittsburgh

Organized by the Duquesne Psychology Department

Without doubt the foundational text of Lacanian psychoanalysis, Jacques Lacan’s Écrits, remains fifty

years after its 1966 publication, an invaluable resource for how we might understand and practice

psychoanalysis. As labyrinthine as it is enigmatic, Écrits is at once Lacan’s manifesto for what a Freudian

psychoanalysis should be, and the condensed companion-piece to the first fifteen years of his weekly Seminar.

The publication, in 2006, of Écrits: The First Complete Edition in English (translated by Bruce Fink),

made Lacanian theory more accessible to the English-speaking world. And yet Lacan’s Écrits remains

inexhaustible, an array of elliptical texts that invite multiple interpretations and interventions. The 2019

Lacan’s Écrits Conference will extend this tradition of exposition and engagement by hosting many of the

world’s foremost experts on Lacan, and by exploring multiple perspectives on, and applications of,

Lacan’s Écrits.

What if you discovered that a cherished family member had been a Nazi? How have German families sought to keep the Holocaust at bay? How do we respond to collective crimes in the past or racial injustices in the present? What lurks in the silences that are passed down between generations and what do we teach our children about the importance of remembering? In his award-winning book, Not in my Family: German Memory and Responsibility After the Holocaust, Roger Frie explores the moral implications of memory in this time of overt prejudice and racism. His intensely personal confrontation with the unspoken Nazi past in his own German family sheds light on nature of trauma and its lasting effects on individuals, families and societies.

Following Roger Frie’s presentation, a panel of discussants will use his book to reflect on the nature of intergenerational trauma and its transmission; the responsibility to address collective crimes across time and place; and the experience of indigenous peoples. There will be time for audience participation.


Roger Frie is Professor of Education at SFU and Affiliate Professor of Psychiatry at UBC. He is author most recently of Not in My Family: German Memory and Responsibility After the Holocaust, which won the 2017 Canadian Jewish Literary Award and editor of History Flows Through Us: Germany, the Holocaust and the Importance of Empathy. He is a psychologist and philosopher who writes and lectures widely on historical trauma, culture and memory, and social responsibility.


Hilda Fernandez is a practicing psychotherapist and psychoanalyst. She is clinical director of the Lacan Salon, an academic associate with the SFU Institute for the Humanities, and a PhD candidate in the Department of Geography at SFU.

Graham Forst has an interdisciplinary PhD in literature and philosophy. He has published several articles on literary criticism and writes reviews for Canadian Literature, one of UBC's journals. In 1975, he founded the Vancouver Holocaust Symposium for High School Students, which he chairs to this day.

Endre Koritar is a training and supervising analyst of the Western Psychoanalytic Society Institute and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UBC. He is interested in how relational, emotional and environmental trauma shapes personality development and psychopathology.
