51st IPA Congress - The Feminine

Psychoanalytic theory and practice both have a part to play in addressing the question of ‘the feminine’. Our goal for this Congress is to focus on issues that affect the everyday life and experiences of both women and men.

Since the late nineteenth century, concerns and problems related to the female condition, which were previously normalised or silenced, have become increasingly visible in different cultures.

Psychoanalytic theories on the feminine have widened and diversified. Important debates emerged early on, such as the Freud-Jones controversy on primary and secondary femininity, and the role of penis envy in development. Many female analysts developed and presented their ideas on these issues. These debates are ongoing and have become increasingly sophisticated. The riddle of bisexuality has stood at the centre of psychoanalysis since the beginning and contains both the feminine and the masculine. The question of whether there is a set of fantasies that are connected more with the feminine than with the masculine remains open.

Each society, culture or historical period attributes certain behaviours to the feminine or the masculine. However, most people have their own personal mixture of these, and it would be an over-simplification to prescribe a fixed set of properties to one particular sex. The psychoanalytic approach is now broader, including the feminine within the field of the masculine. New family configurations and sexual and gender diversity have challenged established standards of sexual binarism and have invited new questions about femininity and masculinity. The feminine protects the infant and its development; it guarantees survival and furnishes the mother tongue. In the intermediary spaces of two, three or more persons, all the involved persons continuously negotiate the positions of the feminine and the masculine, changing the question of what should be labelled as feminine and what as masculine. We have therefore had to revisit many concepts whose relevance for clinical practice is unquestionable: among them, the Oedipal-castration complex and its traditional resolution, the feminine superego, and women’s desire for children.

Within this framework, the IPA takes up the challenge of updating and rethinking classical psychoanalytic views on the feminine and their repercussions in psychoanalysis.

The Fifth Annual School of the EPI
28th July – 3rd of August 2019, Paris
Preliminary Announcement
We are very pleased to confirm that  the EPI fifth “integration” annual School “The Pleasure Principle… and Beyond” will be taking place in Paris from the 28 th July (arrival) till 3rd of August (departure) 2019.   This School is being organized by the European Psychoanalytical Institute together with the Paris Psychoanalytical Society (La Société Psychanalytique de Paris – S.P.P) in collaboration with the French Psychoanalytical Society (L’Association Psychanalytique de France – A.P.F.) and the Psychoanalytic Society of Research and Education (La Société Psychanalytique de Recherche et de Formation – S.P.R.F.).

The theme “The Pleasure Principle… and Beyond” will be tackled from different perspectives by the invited speakers and discussants. We believe the School with the everyday plenary lectures and invited discussions, small clinical groups, workshops, a film screening and discussion, as well as other interesting social events will become an remarkable further step in building bridges and maintaining constructive dialogue between different psychoanalytic cultures. It will be an excellent opportunity for exchange, debates and for learning about and from a deeply rooted in history and dynamically developing psychoanalytic culture of contemporary France and, of course, of learning from each other, from our differences as well as from our shared ideas and grounds.

This year the TSR-D seminar (only for EPI candidates belonging the TSR-D class) will be organized before the core School-program on the 27th/28th of July, 2019.

There will be also a special evening program on Child and Adolescent psychoanalysis for the preregistered class of the trainees.

The registration will be open in due time. As usually we anticipate a heavy demand for places from potentially interested participants belonging to different European Societies and Study Groups. For this reason and also because the annual School is now the only meeting point for the EPI candidates, registered analysands and members with the Institute’s board and faculty you are strongly recommended not only to reserve the dates, but also to book your place quickly after you receive the information letter from the School’s organizing committee.
