TitelFreud in Translation, Freud in Transition
BeschreibungIt is sometimes argued that psychoanalysis, now over a century old if we count from The Interpretation of Dreams (1900) and widely diffused in popularised forms in today’s ‘therapy society’, has run its course as a source of theoretical debate. Within the UK academy, it has had difficulty achieving recognition, since its claims to scientific validity are often disputed, and it is institutionally recognised only in a few departments, poised between social sciences and pure theory. At the same time, as a way of asking questions, it is thriving as never before: in psychoanalytic bodies, at least 20 of which exist in London alone, which train practitioners amid full programmes of seminars, conferences etc; in countries outside the UK, such as Argentina or France, in which psychoanalysis continues to play a marked role in intellectual life; and in UK research practice in the arts & humanities. It is this conjuncture of continuing debate that the new IGRS Network will map and develop.

The Network opens at the close of the Freud anniversary year with an international conference, Freud in Translation, Freud in Transition. Based on the principle of exploration and debate, this Conference brings together the widest possible group of interested people – clinicians, academics, translators, practising artists, arts and humanities theorists, from three continents – and consists of workshops, an arts event, and eight plenaries. All sections are fully participatory, including the plenaries, at each of which a panel of four speakers will open discussion by introducing the issues that they consider of most urgent concern, and debate will then be open to the floor.

Plenary speakers include (alphabetically): Sally Alexander, David Bell, Julia Borossa, John Forrester, Elsbeth Greven, Mary Jacobus, Sharon Kivland, Darian Leader, Juliet Flower MacCannell, Griselda Pollock, Jane Rendell, Andrea Sabbadini, Joseph Schwartz and Edward Timms.

On the basis of the questions raised at the November Conference, eight seminars will run throughout 2007 in London, Cambridge and Edinburgh, and the Network will close in January 2008 with a Concluding Conference that will both sum up and lead forward to the next stage: publications, further projects etc. The IGRS is working with two official Project Partners, the Freud Museum in London and the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) in Cambridge; through its Core Advisory Group it also has direct links with the BPAS/IPA, BPC, CentreCATH Leeds, CFAR, the Humanities and Arts Research Centre (HARC) RHUL, the Scottish Institute of Human Relations (SIHR) Edinburgh, The Site, and the Wimbledon College of Art.
