The Philadelphia Lacan Study Group & Seminar has been meeting since 1990 as an open seminar devoted to the discussion of Freud’s and Lacan’s main ideas and their application to broader clinical, social, and cultural issues.
The newly founded Lacan Reading Group has been inaugurated to study Lacan’s principle theories and their application to a broader understanding of texts, art, drama, literature, philosophy, and aesthetics. In its regular two-hour forums, the group will create a space where the learning, discussion and transmission of Lacan’s works became part of the ongoing global scholarly debates. Poststructuralist responses to Lacanian theory, especially by Kristeva, Irigaray, Cixious, Derrida, Foucault, Delueze and Guattari, Butler and so on in a multidisciplinary context, are part of the group’s research interest areas. The group is open to the postgraduates across humanities, writers, artists, and academics interested in Lacan and his theories. Lacan Reading is run by Dr Ehsan Azari, who teaches a postgraduate course for students of Master of Fine Arts (Writing for Performance) at NIDA. Please Ehsan.Azari@nida.edu.au, or 0402 440 63 if you wish to participate in the meetings.

This interview, conducted by Lacan’s friend Madeleine Chapsal, appeared in L’Express on 31st May 1957 under the title ‘Clefs pour la psychanalyse’ (‘Keys to psychoanalysis’). In her biography of Lacan, Elisabeth Roudinesco describes (p.262) how Chapsal insisted that Lacan answer her questions in plain language that made his thoughts accessible to the general reader. It is one of the rare instances where we find Lacan being disciplined in his clarity and succinctness.
