Daniel Pick will talk informally about his current research relating to the formation of Anglo-American psychoanalytic ideas about the Third Reich. He will consider the context of such work in the 1930s and 40s, and raise questions about their post-war consequences. He will focus, in particular, on encounters between British army doctors and Rudolf Hess, American psychoanalytically-informed studies of the Führer, and theories of the 'Nazi mind' that crystallised at the Nuremberg trial.
