European Jung History Conference

UCL Health Humanities Centre
26th November, 2016
Jointly organised by the UCL Health Humanities Centre / Institute of Advanced Studies  and the Maison interuniversitaire des Sciences de l’Homme, University of Strasbourg.
Despite the continued popularity of Jung’s work – whose sales significantly exceed those of Freud’s – and the presence of analytical psychology in the psychotherapeutic world, serious historical study has lagged behind that of comparable figures. This situation has significantly changed in recent years, with a new generation of scholars undertaking historical research on Jung and the history of analytical psychology in Europe at doctoral and post-doctoral levels, principally at UCL and at the University of Strasbourg. This one day conference foregrounds the work of this new generation of scholars, in dialogue with leading figures in Freud and Jung history.
