About Us

This site is for those interested in Jacques Lacan’s theory and clinic of psychoanalysis, aiming to increase the presence and knowledge of it 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.

Lacan in Scotland aims to flag and create activities and events taking place in Scotland on Lacanian theory and related fields such as philosophy, sociology, politics etc. We run regular seminars where guest speakers from all over the world come and present a topic in which there is an opportunity to engage in a discussion.
