I wish to announce two upcoming events, to which you are all invited.

On January 15th 2022 there will be a one-day free virtual conference entitled Movies, Rock & Roll, Freud.  It will consist of two presentations on rock, two on film, and two on Freud.  Psychoanalyst and historian David James Fisher will speak on Leonard Cohen’s song, Famous Blue Raincoat.   Analyst Jack Schwartz will also speak on rock music.  Historian Geoffrey Cocks will talk about Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, and noted psychoanalyst Susan Kavaler-Adler will address the 1939 version of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights.  Ken Fuchsman will present on the relationship of Sigmund Freud’s late 1890s theories with his own emotional ambivalence about fathers.  The title of this conference is connected to Dr. Fuchsman’s recent book, Movies, Rock & Roll, Freud published by ORI Academic Press.  For any questions, to register, or for more information email  This conference is co-sponsored by the International Psychohistorical Association, the Object Relations Institute and the Psychohistory Forum.


On Saturday, February 12, 2022, there will be a second publication celebration, another free virtual conference.  It will be for The Many Roads of the Builders of Psychohistory (2021, ORI Academic Press), edited by Paul Elovitz, featuring 32 autobiographies of contributors to psychohistory and much else.  In this book, Dr. Elovitz divides the writers into a variety of categories: professional historians, academic and clinical psychology, medicine, additional social science fields, humanities, as well as independent scholars.  Fifteen of the contributors are psychoanalytically trained and ten are by or about scholars who have doctoral degrees in history.  Presentations will be from colleagues of varied backgrounds.  Following these papers, there will be a discussion amongst those with different training and experience to see how their training impacts how they approach psychohistory and what each believes is central to the field.  For more information or to register, contact Ken Fuchsman at  This event is co-sponsored by the International Psychohistory Forum, the Object Relations Institute, and the Psychohistory Forum.

Hi everyone,

Dancer, singer and member of the Resistance during WWI, civil rights activist, she adopted 12 children of different "races" to show that people can live

happy with each other despite their differences.

The Pantheon shelters   "the tombs of the eminent personalities interred in the crypt who shaped France's national identity" .

On the other hand, even if Macron is thus making a great symbolic gesture, it won't make up for for the regression of worker's and social rights etc.. during his


Best wishes
