Lacan Circle of Melbourne is holding its Study Day and invites to this event anyone interested in Lacanian psychoanalysis. The Study Day will be held from 10am to 2pm at Kathleen Syme Library, 251 Faraday Street, Carlton 3053, Multipurpose Room 2. Registration for this all-day event can be made on the day, with the fees of $50, $40 and $30, for non-LCM members, LCM members, and full-time students respectively. Please find below the details of the program for the day.

Session 1 (10:00-11:15) Psychoanalysis and its institutions

Presented by: Noriaki Sato


Session 2 (11:30-12:45) Discussion on Seminar XXIII

Presented by: David Ferraro


This study day will see our reading of Lacan’s Seminar XXIII turn to chapters 5 and 6 of the text, wherein Lacan examined the question of Joyce and his relation to madness. The text makes reference to Joyce’s relationship with Nora Barnacle, including the couple’s correspondence, and this may make useful background reading for this section of the seminar.

Session 3 (13:00-14:00) Negation

Presented by: Russell Grigg


Please contact Noriaki Sato at or Joanna Shemansky at if you have any questions regarding the LCM Study Day.
