Freud and the Non-European - Edward W. Said
2022 marks the 20th Anniversary of Edward Said’s important lecture at the Freud Museum London entitled ‘Freud and the Non-European’. To mark this occasion we are holding an international online conference on the 29th of January. Find out more here.
Banned by the Freud institute in Vienna, this controversial lecture eventually became Edward Said’s final book. Freud and the Non-European builds on Said’s abiding interest in the psychoanalyst’s work to examine Freud’s assumption that Moses was an Egyptian and from there explore the limits of identity. Such an unresolved, nuanced sense of identity, Said argues, might one day form the basis for a new understanding between Israelis and Palestinians.
