About us

The Lacanian Reviews is a digital space that hosts two publications: Lacanian Review Online (LRO) and The Lacanian Review (TLR). Both LRO and TLR are publications of the New Lacanian School (NLS) and the World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP)

LRO is a free, bi-weekly electronic newsletter in English which publishes contributions addressing the pressing questions of our times. It brings up to the minute news flashes to its readers from the frontiers of the Lacanian orientation around the globe.

TLR is a semiannual printed journal published in English. TLR offers newly established texts by Jacques Lacan, Jacques-Alain Miller, and prominent international figures of the Lacanian Orientation. This series features testimonies of the pass, new theoretical developments in Lacanian psychoanalysis, clinical cases, dialogues with prominent academics, and articles on contemporary culture, politics, art and science. Each issue explores a theme intersecting the symptoms of our era and emerging work in the NLS.

LRO and TLR are intended for anyone interested in cultural and clinical applications of Lacanian psychoanalysis. The purpose of these publications is to present the advances of ongoing research emerging from the World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP), as established by Jacques-Alain Miller.

The field of investigation for LRO and TLR is that which Jacques Lacan defined for psychoanalysis insofar as it maintains a structural approach to language, the language we speak in everyday life, which is to say the unconscious. These publications will feature both singular speech, unique to each speaking body, and words that shape public discourse, as well as the modes of jouissance promoted therein. The Lacanian Orientation offers a compass to orient us as subjects that are constantly subsumed by a worldwide Babel in which master signifiers circulate with an unprecedented velocity.

We aim to follow the unconscious, both the decipherable unconscious and the real unconscious, which is structured according to our English language, one that contains many dialects. A general conversation is needed to support this aim; a conversation that might raise misunderstanding to the status of knowledge. The Lacanian Reviews, with LRO and TLR, will host this conversation as one that remains open to all intellectual fields.
