Symposium on Gabriel Tupinambá’s ‘The Desire of Psychoanalysis’

(facebook live stream)

Daniel Tutt and the Study Groups on Psychoanalysis and Politics organized an online symposium on 7th & 8th May 2021 based around the recent book by Gabriel Tupinambá titled The Desire of Psychoanalysis, released by Northwestern University Press, with some of the world’s best newly emerging leading theorists.

Recognizing how certain theoretical and institutional problems in Lacanian psychoanalysis are grounded in the historical conditions of Lacan’s own thinking can help us overcome these impasses; Tupinambá also analyzes the socioeconomic practices that underlie the current institutional existence of the Lacanian community.

The fourth panel of the event, which features three experimental analytic experiences from Brazil, will take place in Portuguese to be uploaded with subtitles later on YouTube.
