Call for Papers

We rely on submissions and in return we aid to get your message across to a large audience.

We are now inviting abstract submissions on topics related to cinema from a Lacanian psychoanalytic perspective, for our second issue to be released late 2023. We are interested in showcasing both those established in the field of psychoanalysis and related ones as well as new and upcoming voices. In order to facilitate the transmission of psychoanalysis, we aim to make psychoanalysis accessible to a diverse audience and are therefore keen to include authors who are able to write about cinema and psychoanalysis in an accessible and engaging manner.
