Psychoanalysis & Exile: 1938-2018

In a time of widespread political instability, Psychoanalysis & Exile: 1938-2018 will aim to address the universal experience of those seeking asylum and living in exile and the parallels they share with historical socio-political conflicts. This year marks the 80th anniversary of the Freud family’s flight from Nazi-occupied Austria and their finding refuge in London in 1938. To commemorate this anniversary, the Freud Museum London is hosting an exhibition ‘Leaving Today: The Freuds in Exile 1938’ addressing the Freuds’ expulsion from Vienna, and their assimilation into their new home in London. Taking its point of reference from the Freuds’ experience, this day conference will explore the historical and current crises that are faced by refugees and asylum seekers the world over, from the exodus from Nazi Germany and Austria in the 1930s, Anna Freud’s work with child refugees, and how researchers and psychoanalysts work with those seeking refuge today. Speakers: Julia Hoffbrand, Diane Silverthorne, David Cohen, Inge Pretorius, Alicia Kent, Leonie Ansems de Vries, Sheila Melzak
