This panel will discuss John Forrester and Laura Cameron's research monograph "Freud in Cambridge" (Cambridge University Press, 2017) with Laura Cameron. (John Forrester died six weeks after the manuscript was submitted to the publisher.) This major, interdisciplinary research monograph considers, as the publisher notes, how "a set of Freudian ideas about the workings of the human mind, sexuality and the unconscious, affected Cambridge men and women – from A. G. Tansley and W. H. R. Rivers to Bertrand Russell, Bernal, Strachey and Wittgenstein – shaping their thinking across a range of disciplines, from biology to anthropology, and from philosophy to psychology, education and literature". We shall reflect on the book's contributions to many geographical sub-disciplines and debates – including psychoanalytic geography; historical geography; cultural geographical investigations of the mind; the configuration of the city; geographical investigations of scientific practice; and the history of geography.
