It is with great regret that we learnt of the death of Professor John Forrester, a distinguished Associate of our Society, on Tuesday 24th November. He made an extensive contribution to the study of the history of psychoanalysis and was a great friend to our Society.
Professor Forrester’s close colleague, Simon Schaffer, has written a moving obituary, which is available on the University of Cambridge’s website:
It is uplifting to end a very busy 2015 with the launch of our new website. The website is clear, modern and packed with interesting content. It represents an Institute which is proud of its history, and the enormous contribution it has made to the understanding of the human mind, but is not obsessed with the past. It portrays us, quite accurately, as a forward thinking Institute.
The launch of the website symbolises a year where there has been a good deal of focused work in thinking carefully about how the outside world perceives us.
