Psychoanalysis, Money and the Economy

  • 2 Jul 2010 — 4 Jul 2010

This conference is convened by David Bennett (University of Melbourne) and Ivan Ward (Freud Museum) and is supported by Birkbeck College, the London Consortium and the Australian Research Council. Freud once warned his fellow analysts that there are two subjects that ‘civilized people’ will always treat ‘with the same inconsistency, prudishness and hypocrisy’ but about which psychoanalysts must insist on speaking, namely: money matters and sexual matters. This conference aims to explore all aspects of the nexus between psychoanalysis, money and the economy.

Confirmed speakers include Etienne Balibar (University Paris X-Nanterre), Bruce Fink (Duquesne Univ.), Jean-Joseph Goux (Rice University), Susie Orbach (London), Bernard Stiegler (Pompidou Centre and Goldsmiths, Univ. of London), Andrew Samuels (University of Essex).
