Psychoanalysis Working Group

The Psychoanalysis Working Group provides a context for colleagues across the College to meet together to explore psychoanalytic theory and practice in all its diverse dimensions.

It acts as an intellectual hub for colleagues to meet regularly, providing a forum for already established psychoanalytic reading groups and seminar series as well as the development of new ones, and offering academic support for 'work in progress' by any member of the group.

The working group fosters new collaborative research and funding bids, and provides a forum for a core of committed academics to develop the public profile of Birkbeck's own diverse research on (as well as critiques of) psychoanalytic theories, practice and institutions.
