Cultural Essays

The IPA in Culture Committee invites you to share your psychoanalytic reflections on literature, movies, art, music, dance, creativity and all aspects of cultural life in the form of a brief essay. If you wish to share a brief essay on your psychoanalytic thoughts about culture with the IPA community, please send your text to Cordelia Schmidt-Hellerau: schmidthellerau.cordelia@gmail.com.

Please note the views in these essays are not selected or evaluated by the culture committee but express only the opinions of their authors. The essays can be translated by DeepL .
