Spring: A Journal of Archetype and Culture, Vol. 91

Nancy Cater & Patricia Reis, Co-Editors

This volume was inspired by When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice by American writer, naturalist, and environmental activist Terry Tempest Williams. We are honored that Terry Tempest Williams agreed to be interviewed in this issue. Other contributors are writers, poets, teachers, analysts, educators, and theorists. Included are both clinical articles, as well as personal and more academic papers. While written in varying styles, the articles share similar themes, from the deeply personal to the cultural and historical, from the literary to the mythological and spiritual. The articles address the psychological issues that arise when women attempt to express themselves, the obstacles faced, the obstacles overcome (or not), and the creativity that may released.

Jung in the Academy
Jung in the Academy and Beyond:

The Fordham Lectures 100 Years Later

Edited by Mark E. Mattson, Frederick J. Wertz, Harry Fogarty, Margaret Klenck, and Beverley Zabriskie

C. G. Jung delivered a ground-breaking and influential series of lectures at Fordham University in 1912. In many ways, the lectures laid out the future development of his work as well as his movement away from Freud. Fordham University, in collaboration with the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association of New York, honored the 1912 Jung lectures with a conference that sought to locate Jung in the Academy and beyond—in the years when the lectures were delivered and published, in today’s academic and clinical world, and into the future, with speculations and insights into the trends of psychological and scientific research and understanding. This book is an expanded proceedings of this conference, and gives us hope—hope that Jungian thought is alive in the Academy, where both will find enrichment, hope that the misunderstandings and old wounds within the depth psychological world may finally be healed, and hope for even more fruitful conversation among current scientific explorations, theological reflections, political concerns, and analytical psychology.
