Dear colleagues,

With the world remembering 9/11 and talk of war in the air again, it seems fitting yet again that our posts reflect the history of the world as well as of psychoanalytic thought. This week these reviews seem particularly pronounced. I will mention some in my own list below. Please feel free to comment on the website.

My choices this week are as follows:

1) To begin with, the Announcements Category is brimming with interesting events, and if you can attend any or all of them, please do. I am only focusing on 3 posts, but there are others.

Donations to InternationalPsychoanalysis.net

Posted August 14th, 2014 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Announcements

Internationanalpsychoanalysis.net has flourished in a remarkable way since it was launched in January 2007. It has become both an archive and a news source.

One of the serendipitous outgrowths of its presence and has been that we have even more reasons to experience ourselves as a community with a history, elders, anniversaries, anecdotes, a paper trail, photos and relics of our founders — and evidence of our on-going growth and adaptation to a very changed therapeutic world.

But the growth has outpaced the cottage and one computer.

Are you able to contribute to the cost of our widening scope?

We will use contributions to internationalpsychoanalysis.net to scan and transcribe papers, search archives, find photographs format documents and upload recordings and videos. It is labor intensive and for me a labor of love [but for the helpers, indeed, work]. Read the rest of this post »

Art Song On the Couch: Lieder in Freud’s Vienna
Tuesday, November 11, 2014, 8 pm
Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Center (129 W. 67th, NYC)
Janai Brugger, soprano; John Brancy, baritone
Steven Blier and Michael Barrett, pianists

In the early years of the 20th century German Lieder took on a new psychological and musical complexity: Gustav Mahler had a life-changing encounter with Sigmund Freud; Richard Strauss’s Ophelia-Lieder brought Shakespeare’s heroine into the analyst’s office; and German art song entered a new Golden Age fueled by dreams and hidden desires. Music by Wolf, Mahler, Schoenberg, Strauss, and others. Read the rest of this post »

Save the Date! MOZART and FREUD VISIT NEW YORK CITY
Thursday, October 9, 2014, 8:00 – 10:00pm, Collation to follow

This one act play, written by Julie Jaffee Nagel is a conversation between Mozart and Freud discussing Freud’s disclaimers about music and Mozart’s counterclaim that he could only express himself through music. These two icons engage in a lively discussion about their feelings regarding music and psychoanalysis. Specifically we learn about Mozart and some of the dynamics that contributed to his great piano Sonata, K 310 in A Minor. Following Freud and Mozart’s discussion, the entire Sonata will be performed by Louis Nagel. Read the rest of this post »
