DIALOGUES ON SEXUALITY, GENDER AND PSYCHOANALYSIS. Edited by Iréne Matthis. London: Karnac Books, 2004.

Review by:
Eva Hurtig

On 30-31August 2001, an International Conference on Sexuality and Gender took place in Stockholm, Sweden. The Conference was well attended and appreciated. As a natural and requested consequence, the many interesting lectures are now available in book form.

The conference was organized by COWAP (Committee on Women and Psychoanalysis). This is a commission created in 1998 by the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA). The main purpose was to create a forum for study and discussion of scientific, clinical and political issues related to women and psychoanalysis. The same type of issues concerning men and psychoanalysis are now also included.

The initiator and organizer of this conference was Iréne Matthis, the COWAP Scandinavian coordinator.

Iréne Matthis is Professor of Psychoanalysis and Assistant Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at Umeå University in Sweden. She is a training analyst and teacher at the Swedish Psychoanalytic Institute (IPA). In addition, she is a Board Member of the International Neuro-psychoanalysis Society and editor of the Bulletin Section of the International Journal of Neuro-Psychoanalysis. She is the author of several books and papers.

This experienced psychoanalyst and author is now the editor of the book “Dialogues on Sexuality, Gender and Psychoanalysis”. The book contains a collection of the many thought-provoking and exciting lectures from the Conference.

The idea behind the conference was to meet and explore new theories, which are now more and more substituting traditional models of femininity theories.
