Psychoanalysis and the University

The primary objective of the Psychoanalysis & the University Committee is to chart a map of the psychoanalysts affiliated to the International Psychoanalytical Association who work in Universities at various levels and in diverse roles. It is tasked to foster a psychoanalytic presence in the university academic environment; to establish a network of psychoanalysts who work in universities and to promote a dialogue between psychoanalytic thinking and university culture, including encouraging debate on psychoanalytic training which is likely to enhance the dialogue between present psychoanalytical thinking and university culture. In this way, they intend to ascertain – at least partly – who and how numerous these psychoanalysts are, what they teach, in what way and to whom.
