So this is the Strong Sex: Early Women Psychoanalysts

The Freud Museum London’s upcoming exhibition “So this is the Strong Sex”: Early Women Psychoanalysts explores the lives and work of a number of women from the early history of psychoanalysis. An exciting collaboration with the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna, this historically focussed exhibition showcases the major influence Marie Bonaparte, Helene Deutsch, Emma Eckstein, Anna Freud, Lou Andreas-Salomé and Sabina Spielrein had on the work of Sigmund Freud and the development of psychoanalysis.

Using materials from the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna, the show will connect the achievements of these figures with the era in which they lived. Seeking to challenge the idea of psychoanalysis as a science dominated by men, the issues of childcare in Vienna of the 1920s and 1930s, the development of international women’s movements, and core topics of psychoanalysis such as the Oedipus complex, transference and countertransference, sexuality and femininity will be explored.

For the first time ever the Freud Museum London will be exhibiting unpublished letters from Princess Marie Bonaparte, a figure integral to the Freud family’s escape from the Nazis in 1938. Alongside antiquities from Freud’s collection which Bonaparte personally smuggled out of Nazi-occupied Vienna, this opening up of the archive is an exciting opportunity to discover the personal correspondence of Anna and Sigmund Freud, and their most trusted confidantes.

Migration and Diversity through the Psychosocial Lens

Abstract: Psychoanalytic literature on migration often focuses on individual case studies of migrants, describing the psychic mechanisms that make up the subject’s experience (splitting, dissociation, mourning…). This literature offers little critical analysis of the social and cultural context of migration, and does little to help us address the pressing question of our time, which is how people live together in a world where migration and diversity are the new normal. Using ethnographic case studies from different parts of the world, this talk argues that a socially relevant psychoanalytic approach must link processes of subject-formation to the circulations of fantasies about self, others, and community within specific national and local contexts.

Nikolay Mintchev is a Research Associate at the Institute for Global Prosperity at University College London and a Visiting Fellow at the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies at the University of Essex. He specializes on the themes of prosperity, social change, migration and diversity, bringing together theoretical perspectives from the social sciences and psychosocial studies. He is co-editor (with R. D. Hinshelwood) of The Feeling of Certainty: Psychosocial Perspectives (Palgrave McMillan, 2017).
