A one day symposium exploring debates within psychoanalysis and film held on 14th 0ctober 2013 at the Freud Museum, London.
The symposium opens a dialogue that invites trans-disciplinary interrogations of psychoanalysis and cinema, fiction and documentary. It will investigate the interplay between the unconscious, its bodily expression and the speech/image on the one hand, and its position in culture and society on the other.
The speakers include some of the most original thinkers in the academy today (in alphabetical order): Professor Stephen Frosh, Birkbeck College, University of London, Professor Luke Hockley, University of Bedfordshire, Professor John Izod, University of Stirling, Professor Vicky Lebeau, University of Sussex, Dr Agnieszka Piotrowska, University of Bedfordshire and Professor Emma Wilson, University of Cambridge.
The day concludes with a drinks reception to mark the publication of two radical new books: Professor Hockley’s Somatic Cinema: The relationship between body and screen – a Jungian perspective and Dr Piotrowska’s Psychoanalysis and Ethics in Documentary Film both published by Routledge.
