Open Spaces was formed to bring together people who are interested in questioning how psychoanalysis can expand its reach to include diversity among its central components of inquiry. The Analytic Division is hosting the 2nd year of “Open Spaces” and excited to announce our speakers who have dedicated their thinking and work to include the “social substrate” as part of what forms and influences us. 

If you wish to register for any of these offerings at this time, please click the registration link at the bottom of this page and you will be sent to a registration page. Please specify which event(s) you are registering for. You will receive a Zoom link shortly before the event(s) you list. As we get closer to each event we will send individual flyers, also with registration links along with program details. Upon registration (whether now or as each event is announced), any papers that the speaker(s) feel may be useful, will be sent to you.  

“Open Spaces” is a free space” and welcomes all members of the ICP community.
