Psychoanalysis and the Culture-Breast is a series of public conversations at the Freud Museum, London around our experiences with cultural objects (art, film, literature, music) and how psychoanalysis might help us to reflect on these experiences. All three events will take place online and from January-March 2023. This series is organised by psychoanalytic psychotherapist and psychosocial theorist Noreen Giffney; hosted by the Freud Museum, London; and co-sponsored by Psychoanalysis +, the Student Counselling Service at Atlantic Technological University Donegal, and the Centre for Communication, Media and Cultural Studies at Ulster University.
