Psychoanalysis Study Group

The Psychoanalysis Study Group is an interdisciplinary seminar for academics and clinicians who are interested in psychoanalytic theory. Through close reading of texts and presentations by psychoanalysts and academics, we consider the application of psychoanalytic ideas to patients, texts, film, art, culture, and ideas, leaving room to elaborate points of common interest and points of difference.
