LS-NLS Knotting Seminar
Saturday, 04 May 2019

LS-NLS Knotting Seminar

The London Society will be holding its annual Knotting Seminar on the 23rd of March 2019. An important event in our calendar, a Knotting Seminar is a device designed to bring the geographically distant elements of the NLS together by linking them together in a day of work conducted around a common theme. The knot is formed by: members of the host society or group; a guest from one of the other societies or groups that make up the NLS; and a member of the executive committee.

At this event, we will be welcoming Maria Cristina Aguirre (AMS), Secretary of the NLS, and a member of Lacanian Compass, a newly affiliated group of the NLS in the US) and Nassia Linardou-Blanchet (AMS), member of the Hellenic Society of the NLS, who will join us as we continue our work preparing for the next NLS Congress, to be held in Tel Aviv later this summer, on the theme of ¡Urgent!

At the initiative of NLS President, Bernard Seynhaeve, the day will be divided into two parts. The first part will foreground the essential dimension that the Lacan’s conception of a School introduces into the question of what is at stake in a psychoanalytic institution worthy of the name. This section will feature short presentations by Roger Litten and Susana Huler (AMS), each designed to initiate a discussion to which our guests, and in particular Maria Cristina Aguirre, as representative of the NLS Executive committee, will contribute.

In the afternoon, the more traditional structure of a Knotting Seminar will take place, with a keynote theoretical presentation by Maria Cristina Aguirre followed by three clinical cases chosen to illustrate different aspects of the theme, by our guest Nassia Linardou-Blanchet from Athens, and London Society members Gabriela Van den Hoven and Peggy Papada.

This is a special event and a very full day!

Venue: Room G04, Birkbeck School of Arts, 43 Gordon Square London WC1H 0PD
