This academic conference aims to build on the success of the first IAAP International Academic Conference held at the Centre for Psychoanalytical Studies, University of Essex, UK in 2002. To this end, participants are asked to look for 'current connections' between existing academic disciplines, research fields and interdisciplinary areas and analytical psychology/Jungian studies in order to provoke 'creative dialogues'. Presentatioms come from the sciences, medicine, arts, humanities, social sciences as well clinical fields in order to explore the interface between analytical psychology/Jungian studies and other fields and spheres of scholarly research.

This conference recognizes emerging disciplinary and interdisciplinary areas as well as established fields of inquiry including classical Jungian, archetypal, and developmental analytical perspectives. The conference also welcomes proposals from practicing artists among many exciting areas of cultural representation that are relevant to Jungian studies.

Analytical Psychology and the Academy

Analytical Psychology originated in the work of the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961). Offering a comprehensive model of the human psyche, analytical psychology includes a psychotherapeutic approach for improving mental health and facilitating maturation of the personality as well as a theoretical body of knowledge with wide applicability to social and cultural issues.

The proliferation, significance, and potential of Jungian programs in universities has attracted many comments, including the following:

'An explosion of clinical and cultural interest in Jungian ideas has resulted in university appointments in analytical psychology being made in countries such as Australia, Brazil, Japan, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.'
Ann Casement

'What we are dealing with is not only the future of Jung studies outside the professional clinical institutes, but also the general intellectual reputation of Jung and how he fits into a pluralist intellectual world in which his work is not awarded any special favours or status.'
Professor David Tacey

'In the last thirty years, analytical psychology has become a healthy, pluralistic discipline. It is time for it to become more consciously inter-disciplinary and to actively claim its proper place in sociocultural debate at tertiary level.'
Professor Andrew Samuels

'Analytical Psychology provides light in the dark halls of academic psychology and along with Jungian Studies offers hope for creative connections and innovative dialogue between multiple disciplines.'
Professor David Rosen
