About Us

Lacan in Scotland aims to flag research activities and events taking place in Scotland on Lacanian theory as well as related topics such as psychoanalytic theory and practice, and discourse theory.

This site is for those interested in Lacan and related theories, aiming to increase the presence and knowledge of Lacanian theory in Scotland/north of England, and make it easier to engage in his work by bringing together those involved in it as well as those wishing to become familiar with it.
