Freud and Said – Elective Affinities

Freud and Said – Elective Affinities

Further information, programme and tickets >>

2022 marks the 20th Anniversary of Edward Said’s important lecture at the Freud Museum London entitled ‘Freud and the Non-European’.

Focusing on Freud’s final completed work ‘Moses and Monotheism’, Said’s controversial reading of Freud’s equally controversial text was published by Verso books in 2003, and also proved to be Said’s final published work.

In this international conference we will seek to revisit Said’s lecture and explore some of the latent themes within the text; to treat it contrapuntally by amplifying some of the latent voices it contains. We will also explore certain ‘elective affinities’ between the two thinkers, taking a trans-disciplinary approach, in order to open up new ground for discussion and provoke inter-disciplinary exchange.
