LACK 2016

Psychoanalysis and Freedom


The first annual conference for LACK, a new organization devoted to the promotion and development of Lacanian psychoanalytic theory, will be held at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on April 22-23, 2016.

This conference hopes to bring together those interested in exploring the philosophical, political, and cultural implications of psychoanalytic theory, especially as it relates to the question of freedom.  Though practitioners are welcome, the focus of the conference is psychoanalytic theory rather than practice, and theoretical papers will be privileged.
