The California Dream and a Future Psychoanalysis
Lecture, 24 May 2022, 20:00
While an analysis of Freud’s reception is an interesting question to ask of any place, in other words how psychoanalysis came to take root (or not) in a specific locale and time, it becomes a particularly noteworthy interrogation when one considers the peculiar case of California and its history of émigré analysts, such as Siegfried Bernfeld, Ernst Simmel, and Otto Fenichel, who fled to the state in the 1930s.
Part of the lecture series Psychoanalytische Kulturwissenschaft
The lecture series is a cooperation of the Berlin Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (BiPP), the Cultural Science Institute of the Humboldt University Berlin, the International Psychoanalytic University (IPU), and the ICI Berlin, organized by Wilhelm Brüggen (BIPP), Monika Englisch (BIPP) and Andreas Gehrlach (HU Berlin), funded by the Friedrich Stiftung.
