This year Education Day will be taking place via a Zoom meeting. Unlike a Zoom webinar, a Zoom large meeting will allow all participants to see each other and ask live questions during the Q&A and plenary sessions. Education Day will welcome all SAPI members, as usual, and will be open, for the first time, to non-SAPI members both from South Africa and overseas.

Registration will be done in two stages: Quicket, first, and Zoom, second. Both SAPI and non-SAPI members will start by acquiring a ticket via Quicket here

Once this is done (for free or for a fee) you will be sent a ticket to your email address, with a link to the Zoom registration page. You will use the Quicket ticket number to register on the Zoom meeting registration page ( SAPI will manually authorize this part of the registration (which might take up to 24 hours). Once authorized, you will get your unique Zoom meeting id via email. We are hoping that this can be done smoothly and want to encourage you to register at your earliest convenience, as this is new for us all. If you have any issues please don’t hesitate to contact us at sapi.exco@gmail.comand we will try to help you as swiftly as possible.

The reading/viewing list provided by the Scientific Committee follows:

  1. Sigmund Freud: Totem and Taboo
  2. Mark Solms: Revision of the Theory of the Oedipus Complex (unpublished version, not for circulation, in attachment).
  3. Barnaby Barratt: Oedipality and oedipal complexes reconsidered: On the incest taboo as key to the universality of the human condition (in attachment).
  4. YouTube video of Trevor Noah speaking about racism in relation to a breakdown of the social contract

We look forward to having you with us on Education Day,
