In the autumn of 1912, the psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung delivered a series of nine lectures at Fordham University. Although titled “The Theory of Psychoanalysis”, he outlined the future development of his work as differing from the theories of Sigmund Freud. A revised edition of these lectures, first published in the inaugural edition of the Psychoanalytic Review, is soon to be released.
Fordham University in collaboration with the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association of New York will observe the centenary of these lectures with a conference that will locate Jung in the academy, and beyond, in the culture. It will explore Jung’s position in the years of the original lecture, in the present, and in the future.
Locating Jung in academia and beyond involves contributions from many disciplines, including but not limited to psychoanalysis, psychology, psychiatry, literature, religious studies, history, the sciences and the arts, and interdisciplinary fields.
The conference will be held October 26 and 27, 2012 at Fordham University’s Rose Hill campus, the site of the original lectures. On Friday evening, October 26th, Sonu Shamdasani (University College London) will present a public keynote lecture. Other speakers include Joseph Cambray, Eugene Taylor and Ann Ulanov.
We invite your submissions for brief papers (20 minutes) which may be either a single lecture or integrated into panel presentations, to be delivered on Saturday October 27, 2012. Please submit :
