Call for Papers: Jung in the Academy and Beyond: The Fordham Lectures –
100 Years Later
October 26 -27, 2012 Fordham University, Bronx, New York
In the autumn of 1912, the psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung delivered a series of nine lectures at Fordham University. In his Fordham presentations, Jung outlined the difference in his perspective from the theories of Sigmund Freud. A revised edition of these lectures, first published in the inaugural Psychoanalytic Review, has just been released by Princeton University Press: Jung Contra Freud: The 1912 New York Lectures on the Theory of Psychoanalysis, with an introduction by Sonu Shamdasani.
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 psychoanalysis, psychology, psychiatry, literature, religious studies, history, the sciences and 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 (Philemon Professor, University College London) will present a public keynote lecture. Other invited speakers include Joseph Cambray (Harvard Medical School), Eugene Taylor (Saybrook Graduate School and Harvard Medical School), and Ann Ulanov (Union Theological Seminary).
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 the following:
1. title – author names and affiliations
2. short 150-250 word abstract to be published on-line and in program
