Workshop on Albert Moll (1862-1939)
The Centre for the History of Medicine and Disease (CHMD) recently held its 7th international Workshop on the topic "Sex, Ethics and Psychology: The Networks and Cultural Context of Albert Moll (1862-1939)" on 5 and 6 November 2009 in the Wolfson Research Institute.
The Berlin psychiatrist Albert Moll was one of the most prominent medical authors in late Imperial and Weimar Germany. A founder of psychotherapy and sexology as well as critic of Freud, he was also an important figure in the medical profession, medical ethics, and the fight against occultism. The workshop was part of the research project "Albert Moll: Psychology, Sexology and Ethics" and responds to a recent resurgence of interdisciplinary and international interest in this author. The event was sponsored by the Wellcome Trust.
Speakers included : Heather Wolffram (University of Queensland, Brisbane), Harry Oosterhuis (University of Maastricht), Holger Maehle (Durham University), Philippe Weber (University of Zurich), Lutz Sauerteig (Durham University), Barbara Wolf-Braun (University of Frankfurt/Main).
