Francis Grier, Editor-in-Chief of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis, will introduce the event.

In this conference, our four speakers who have all enjoyed close working relationships with Dana Birksted-Breen, will present papers based on different aspects of her work. The papers will be followed by audience discussion.

Dana Birksted-Breen is a training and supervising psychoanalyst of the British Psychoanalytical Society. She was the General Editor of the New Library of Psychoanalysis (2000-2010), initiating the New Library Teaching Series in 2005, and she was the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis (2007-2022). Dana was elected as a Distinguished Fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society in 2022.

Dana Birksted-Breen is interested in the points of connection and disconnection between theory and practice, and the creative spaces between the two. Over many years she has investigated ideas of identity, sexuality, symbolization, temporality, and the psychoanalyst’s mode of attention in the session, publishing books and papers on these areas.

In 2021 she edited Translation/Transformation, 100 Years of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis. Her latest monograph, The Work of Psychoanalysis, Sexuality, Time and the Psychoanalytic Mind, was published by the New Library of Psychoanalysis (2016). In celebration of the Centenary of the IJP, she convened an international conference in 2019, co-curated an exhibition at the Freud Museum, “The Enigma of the Hour,” and created a short film https://vimeo.com/383978034.
