Freud in Zion: Psychoanalysis and the Making of Modern Jewish Identity
Eran J. Rolnik, M.D., Ph.D.

Israeli psychoanalyst and historian, Eran Rolnik, will talk about his recent book Freud in Zion: Psychoanalysis and the Making of Modern Jewish Identity (Karnac 2012), which explores the encounter between psychoanalytic expertise, Judaism, Modern Hebrew culture and the Zionist revolution. This historical study has been recognized as an important contribution to a central concern of psychoanalytic studies today: the interplay of psychoanalysis, culture, ideology and politics. The coming of Freudian psychoanalysis to pre-state Israel, where it rapidly penetrated the discourse of pedagogy, literature, medicine, and politics, becoming a popular therapeutic discipline, could be regarded as an integral part of a Jewish immigrant society’s struggle to establish its identity in the face of its manifold European pasts and its conflict-ridden Middle Eastern present.

A book signing will follow the event.

Students, academics and clinical professionals in the analytic community are encouraged to attend. Members of the general public are also welcome.

Dr. Rolnik is a Member, Israel Psychoanalytic Society; Author of several papers on the evolution of Freud’s thought and on the history of psychoanalysis; Hebrew translator and editor of several volumes of Freud’s papers; Adjunct Professor, Tel-Aviv University.

Join us for light refreshments from 7:30 to 8 p.m.
