The IJP Centenary Conference New York: 100 years

The IJP Centenary Conference: Celebrating 100 years of The International Journal

About this event: 'The Psychoanalytic Core: Encountering and Speaking to the Unconscious'

In 1920, the year of publication of the International Journal Freud writes:

“(….) Psycho-Analysis does not stay at abstractly affirming the two theses so painful to Narcissism — the psychical significance of sexuality and the unconsciousness of mental life — but rather proves them by means of a material that touches every individual personally and forces him to face these problems”. It is also in 1920, in Beyond the Pleasure Principle, that Freud explicitly names the death drive, something which was to deal a further blow to ‘Narcissism’. The conferences will be centred on these foundational features which make up the essence of psychoanalysis and look at our take on them in the early part of the 21st century.

To celebrate its centenary, the IJP will be holding three conferences. The first conference, to be held in New York in October 2018, is in retreat format for participants.  The second conference will be held in Buenos Aires in April 2019 and the third conference held in London July 2019 will be our finale event. The London Centenary conference will include an optional half day on Psychoanalysis and Film. In addition we will publish a special Centenary Issue of the Journal to mark the year.
