Ferenczi 150th Anniversary International Conference
Budapest, 9–11 June 2023

Psychoanalysis, Culture and Society
Is it right to think in terms of an international conference when there is a war raging so close to Budapest? Sándor Ferenczi would certainly have answered this question in the affirmative. After all, he organised the Fifth International Psychoanalytic Congress in September 1918 at the end of World War I.
Next year, in 2023, we will be paying tribute to the 150th anniversary of Ferenczi’s birth and of the founding of Budapest. Ferenczi’s clinical and theoretical work and his influence in integrating the ideas of psychoanalysis into culture, the arts and social scientific thought have created potential for development similar to the integration of the former towns of Pest, Buda and Óbuda to form a world city. The theme of the conference, as we intend it, offers an opportunity to approach the current phenomena and challenges of the 21st century in the spirit of Ferenczi.
Organised by the Sándor Ferenczi Society in collaboration with the Hungarian Psychoanalytical Society and the Free Association Lisbon. The conference is supported by the International Sándor Ferenczi Network.
