Saturday, March 15th One Day Seminar:
Going Back to move Forwards

Offered by The Institute for the Study of the Work of Wilhelm Reich

Among the speakers will be:

As we move forward into the next 50 years, Kevin Hinchey will provide a brief overview of the Trust's major responsibilities and activities.
Kevin Hinchey is a Board Member - The Wilhelm Reich Infant Trust and the Associate Director of The Wilhelm Reich Museum

Dr. Håvard Nilsen:
The Troll Circle: The Social Construction of Wilhelm Reich as Pseudo-Scientist 
Dr. Nilsen explores how the view of Reich as a pseudo-scientist with regards to his bion work was socially constructed by the Norwegian government.  This fascinating paper includes a  discussion of the relationship between Reich and Trotsky. 
Håvard Nilsen, Ph.D., is a Research Fellow, in the Department of History at the University of Oslo, Norway.

Dr. Philip Bennett:
Work Democracy, Politics, and the Governance of Society
During the same time period Reich was doing his bion research and enduring the vicious press campaign against it, he began writing on "work democracy," a phrase he coined in 1937.  His writings on this topic continued up to the very end of his life.  Prof. Bennett will explain this concept fully and share some of the results of his research work in the Archive of the Orgone Institute, about which Kevin Hinchey will speak at the beginning of the day. 
Philip Bennett, Ph.D., is a semi-retired college professor, currently teaching in the Graduate School of Education at Fairfield University, in Connecticut.

Panel Discussion, a which time Dr. Harry Lewis puts questions to each of the speakers.
