Study Groups on Psychoanalysis and Politics

Study Groups on Psychoanalysis and Politics (SGPP) launched in May, 2020 at the early apex of the COVID-19 global pandemic with a reading group on Sylvain Lazaraus’s great work Anthropology of the Name. With the success of this reading group, which was followed by a symposium on Lazarus’s political thought, we began to host reading groups every month on important texts in psychoanalytic and Marxist thought.

SGPP is a network of scholars, thinkers, psychoanalysts, political activists, militants and philosophers. We offer advanced study opportunities at virtually no cost other than the cost to pay lecturers and guest presenters. The model consists of a guided discussion for each session analyzing the text followed by a plenary on the text or concept under study upon the conclusion of the text. We also convene seminars and symposia on psychoanalytic and Marxist oriented writers and themes.
