London Centenary Conference

The Psychoanalytic Core: Encountering and Speaking to the Unconscious

20-21 July 2019, London

Organization: International Journal of Psychoanalysis

Celebrating 100 years
On 7 December 1918, shortly after the end of the First World War, Ernest Jones wrote to Sigmund Freud: ‘I think the time is ripe for an English journal’. 2019, the year of the 100th volume of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis, will see the finale of the Centenary Celebration Conferences focused on exploring the unconscious. The London Centenary Conference will take place at the Tower Hotel close to the famous Tower Bridge and St Katharine’s Docks.
Some of the most renowned contemporary analysts will join us in celebrating the unique history that The Journal holds.
