Psychoanalytic Discourse is a quarterly international journal devoted to cross-disciplinary debate among theoreticians, clinicians, cultural scholars, and literary critics working within the psychoanalytic framework. The journal is an independent peer review publication that strives to speak to the informed reader in psychoanalysis and is open to contributions from different schools and academic disciplines. Psychoanalytic Discourse publishes both submitted and invited manuscripts. Authors retain copyrights to their work and may publish their papers elsewhere. We invite scholarly and research papers that offer new ways of understanding the unconscious dimensions of human behaviour. The journal honours not only the diversity of theoretical perspectives, but it also encourages submissions of empirical work with diverse methodological orientations.
