The Freud Memorial Lecture hosted by the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies at the University of Essex is a flagship event within the psychoanalytic community. This public lecture features eminent speakers from the world of psychoanalysis and provides a forum for a psychoanalytic exploration of contemporary issues.
Since the 1990's, the annual Freud Memorial Lecture has brought together staff, students, alumn, clinicians, experts, and the general public. The event was conceived and developed in conjunction with the Freud family. Today, the event features biennial appearances by our joint visiting Professor from the Institute of Psychoanalysis.
The Department of Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Studies continues to host this popular event, providing a platform for high-profile speakers in the field of psychoanalysis. You can watch our previous events here and stay up-to-date with the latest announcements about upcoming lectures.
