2015-2016

 

  • (1) ICLO-NLS OPEN DAY

The opening of the Calendar year of ICLO-NLS activities and presentation of its Programme for 2015/16 will focus on the question “How does one become an analyst?” This will be a free event open to all where the crucial issues of analytic training, university discourse, analytic discourse and the specificity of Lacanian psychoanalysis and its formation will be debated with speakers from Ireland and guest speakers Alan Rowan and Véronique Voruz.

  • (2) ICLO-NLS SEMINAR OF THE LACANIAN ORIENTATION WITH MEMBERS OF THE WAP – CLINICAL CONVERSATIONS

Guest psychoanalysts members of the World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP), join us four times a year to work on topics that are central to psychoanalytic clinical practice. The axis for this year is “Language and the body”, in consonance with the WAP Congress Brazil 2016. This year’s speakers are: Antoni Vicens (Barcelona), Lieve Billiet (Ghent), Gil Caroz (Brussels) and Dominico Cosenza (Milan)

  • (3) ICLO-NLS READING SEMINAR – FREUD

This reading seminar “Returning to Freud (IV), which for this year carries the title “The Neurotic Invented the Father”, is addressed to anybody with an interest in psychoanalytic thinking. Freud’s interest in – and admiration for – religion is well known. He nevertheless did not develop psychoanalysis in the direction of a religious interpretation of the Father but rather concluded that the latter is an invention of the neurotic. Each seminar will focus on an aspect of the two major works Freud devoted to religion: Future of an Illusion and Moses and Monotheism. The three seminars will be based on a close reading, include an exploration of the aspect (that each seminar will focus on) within the context of his work and investigate its relevance for clinical practice.

  • (4) ICLO-NLS READING SEMINAR – LACAN

Under the title “Lacan’s Pluralization of the Name-of-the-Father” three seminars will focus on Lacan’s progressive distancing from Freud and from his own early developments. In times of the inexistence of the Other the status of the Father has come under serious scrutiny while religious extremism rises highlighting a paradox. These seminars will demonstrate that Lacan anticipated this fate of modern subjectivity by tracing his trajectory from the Name-of-the-Father, with its implicit reference to the Father of religion, to the Names-of-the-Father and its beyond. Reference texts for these seminars will be Lacan’s Discourse to the Catholics, The Triumph of Religion and On the Names-of-the-Father.

  • (5) ICLO-NLS SEMINAR OF THE SCHOOL

The Seminar of the School is an internal Seminar for ICLO members, whereby the dimension of Lacan’s School is made present through the reading and discussion of a) the foundational texts referring to the concept of the School, the Cartel and the Pass; b) testimonies of the pass by Analysts of the School. The questions of the formation of the analyst, the passage from analysand to analyst, the bond of the analyst to the School as subject and the question of how the singularity of the subject member of the School can be maintained within a multitude that a School is made up of, are some of the topics to be elaborated in this space.

  • (6) ICLO-NLS SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP

The Special Interest Group (SIG), Child and Adolescent Lacanian Psychoanalysis, which began its work for the first time last year, is a closed group that aims to work on specific areas related to the field of child analysis, in which participants are both engaged with and wish to investigate questions pertaining to their clinical work. A dialogue with other orientations / disciplines will be encouraged through visiting participants, and an annual special event open to the public will be organised.

  • (7) STUDY-DAY

The ICLO-NLS Study-Day, which marks an important aspect of the year’s work in ICLO, is the space where the year’s cartel work and other work carried out by members and participants of ICLO is shared in an event that combines clinical and theoretical presentations in the presence of a guest speaker from the NLS Executive Committee. In 2016 the topic of this Study-Day will be in line with that of the NLS Congress of 2016.

  • (8) ICLO-NLS CARTEL WORK

Anyone with an interest in Lacanian Psychoanalysis may get involved in Cartel work. Work in Cartels is one of the crucial pillars grounding a formation in psychoanalysis but it is, at the same time, a space for anyone interested in psychoanalytic thinking and its application to other areas. There are no requirements (i.e. memberships, qualifications, clinical practice) other than wanting to inscribe one’s singular relationship to psychoanalysis within the framework of this device invented by Lacan, where one works to find, explore and follow one’s own trait in the reading of the texts. For more information or if you are looking to form/join a cartel, please contact: cartels@iclo-nls.org

An Inter-Cartel Day is organized once a year to share the work-in-progress as well as the product singularly produced by each cartelisand and plus-ones, exposing the knowledge elaborated not without others.

For the period 2013/14, and following the success of last year’s events, this seminar will continue to explore the complex relationships between Lacanian theory and the world of the arts. This is a seminar open to all and it reflects ICLO’s engagement with the wider intellectual and cultural community. Against any idea of ‘applying psychoanalysis to the arts’, this is an invitation to critically engage with questions such as creativity, sublimation, etc., following Lacan’s indication that the artist precedes and teaches the analyst in his ‘knowing-how to do with’.

  • ICLO-NLS “THE KNOWING-HOW OF PSYCHOANALYSIS: CLINICAL CONVERSATIONS WITH MEMBERS OF THE World Association of Psychoanalysis”

Guest psychoanalysts from all over Europe, members of the World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP), join us five times a year, between the months of October and February, to work on topics that are central to psychoanalytic clinical practice. The “Clinical Conversations” are organised with two points of emphasis: cases are presented for discussion, and theoretical concepts are studied and put to the test – thus following Lacan’s definition of psychoanalysis as being “the theorisation of a praxis”. This is an invaluable space for practitioners of psychoanalysis who are engaged in their formation and there is a limited number of places available. Registrationin advance is required. The axis for this year will be “Symptom/Fantasy/Sinthome”, within which each guest will propose a particular theme.

  • ICLO-NLS STUDY DAYS

The Study-Days are a new device to address crucial topics of the practice and theory of Psychoanalysis. It follows the spirit of last year’s Teaching Seminar, but aims at a more intensive, condensed form of work, according to the principle that rather than teaching psychoanalysis, one let’s oneself be taught by the experience that psychoanalysis produces. The “Study Days” will take place twice a year, in September and in May. Anybody with an interest in Lacanian psychoanalysis is welcome to attend and indeed to propose to present his/her work at these events.

  • ICLO-NLS OPEN SEMINAR “LACAN AND THE ARTS (I): LITERATURE”

The Open Seminar this year is the first of a series that will explore the relationships between Lacan’s work and the Arts (literature, modern art, film studies, etc) . “Lacan and Literature” aims at recognising the two-way complex and enriching relationship that Lacan had with a diversity of writers throughout his teaching. Freud had already pointed out how the arts somehow preceed psychoanalytic formulation, and Lacan made an use of them that is far from the so-called ‘applied psychoanalysis’. The first event in this series will take place in March, in the form of a one-day Seminar. We shall aim at organising it as a partnership event, making it an important occasion for the Irish literary and cultural scene. [POSTPONED]

  • ICLO-NLS SEMINAR (Members only)

ICLO-NLS’s Annual Member Seminar “Reading the ‘Ecrits‘” aims at a rigorous work of reading, conceptual analysis and articulation of clinical and theoretical problems, with an emphasis on the transmission of psychoanalysis outside the university discourse. That is to say, it concerns the modalities through which the question of psychoanalytic formation, and psychoanalysis in intension, are approached and responded to within ICLO-NLS. For 2011/12 the work will be on Lacan’s “Lituraterre” (not without “The Instance of the Letter...”). This Seminar will take place monthly, between September and May.

  • ICLO-NLS TEACHING SEMINAR

This open Seminar of ICLO-NLS held under the title, “Lacanian Psychoanalysis and the Clinic” is addressed primarily to anybody working in a clinical or applied setting with an interest in how psychoanalytic thinking may be helpful to him or her. Nine two-hours seminars will take place divided into three themes: “Working with Children”, “Working with Psychosis” and “Working with Addictions”. These seminars will focus on introducing and deepening participants’ psychoanalytical understanding of these topic areas as well as their clinical articulation (through vignettes and clinical examples) in terms of key analytic concepts such as transference, symptom and interpretation.

  • ICLO-NLS OPEN SEMINAR

For its second consecutive year, this Seminar will explore the complex conceptual, clinical and political relationships between Lacan’s work and the so-called Post-Freudians. “Lacan with the Post-Freudians” aims at recognising the legacy and value of a diversity of psychoanalysts while, at the same time, highlighting the impasses where something of the real proper to psychoanalysis is encountered. This year there is an invitation to critically re-read the works of Michael Balint, Melanie Klein and Donald Winnicott and to engage with the significance of their contributions to psychoanalysis in the 20th century.
