The lecture traces the lives and works of three of the first female psychoanalysts – Lou Andreas-Salomé, Sabina Spielrein and Joan Riviere – women whose contributions have, in different ways, been hidden, and who were each targets of misogynistic treatment. In considering how the fabric of their lives as women was vital to their psychoanalytic insights, the lecture also looks at the intersections between biography and psychoanalysis.
