Multi-Disciplinary Conference on Art, Culture, Politics and Psychoanalysis


It is related to dread, horror, repulsion and distress. But what is the uncanny and why is it so significant today?

Freud’s investigation into the uncanny has been influential in literature, film, art and philosophy. It can also help us think about political culture and the therapeutic situation itself. This multi-disciplinary conference investigates Freud’s infuriatingly complex and contradictory paper and asks how it can help us understand contemporary dilemmas in art, culture, politics and psychotherapy.

Speakers: Gregorio Kohon, Alexandra Kokoli, Martin Bladh and Karolina Urbaniak, Agneiszka Piotrowska, Carol Leader, June Campbell, Forbes Morlock, Nicholas Royle
