Fear of Strangeness
Antisemitism, xenophobia and uncanny experience
First year of our conference is aimed at creating a space for psychoanalytic exploration of worries of „the strange“ and „the strangers“ in the clinical situation, but also invites experts from humanities into a dialogue and rethinking these phenomena in different contexts.
Thus, we would like to continue in Fenichel’s tradition of open and critial discussions of various psychoanalytic topics. Fenichel was open-minded person, he was assigned to a Freudian psychoanalytic tradition and his free approach welcomed also psychoanalysts and non-psychoanalysts who thought differently.
The announced conference is meant to explore systematically Fenichel’s complex heritage for the Czech and international psychoanalysis. It is planned to be the first meeting in Prague: we would like to dedicate our meetings to Fenichel’s legacy regularly every 2-3 years.Conference is organised especially for clinicians, psychoanalysts and psychodynamically oriented psychotherapists, but also for other researchers and students from various related disciplins are warmly welcome.
