Psychoanalysis and Politics is an international and interdisciplinary conference series that aims to address how crucial contemporary political issues may be fruitfully analysed through psychoanalytic theory and vice versa - how political phenomena may reflect back on psychoanalytic thinking. The first conference was held in 2010. All the conferences are held in English, and the contributors come from a range of different countries. We emphasise room for discussion among the presenters and participants, thus the symposium series creates a space where representatives of different perspectives come together and engage with one another's contributions, participating in a community of thought.Therefore, attendance of the whole symposium is obligatory.
