Dr David Bell, President of the British Psychoanalytic Society
We are living in turbulent times, and organisations of all kinds are being buffeted from many sides as funding is cut, income streams dry up and internal pressure builds. Working in such organizations can be an overwhelming experience for people at all levels and undertaking kinds of roles.
Call for contributions and participation
From academics and practitioners working with psychoanalytic approaches to organizations, we are inviting Case Presentations for inclusion in the Study Day. The Case Presentations might take different forms, depending on the research questions/ consultancy project, the original audience envisaged for the work, and the role of the enquirer: for instance, a collaborative enquirer engaged by the organization under study, a (formal or informal) participative enquirer where the enquirer is a member of the organisation, or an external researcher. The intention is to provide a learning space for reflection on the range of methods and approaches that can incorporate psychoanalysis in sociological enquiry.
Please submit your proposed case presentation in no more than 300 words to the event organizer, Dr Milena Stateva by 14th October 2013. Outstanding case presentations which cannot be accommodated in the Study Day will be published as a blog on a dedicated website. The cases will be presented and discussed in small groups with keynote speeches following.
All are welcome, whether or not a case study is submitted.
£25 – Standard
£15 – BSA members; Birkbeck staff; Tavistock Institute staff & associates; non-Birkbeck students & unwaged
£10 – BSA member students; BSA member unwaged; Birkbeck students
