In September of 1912, Fordham was the site of a watershed moment in the history of psychoanalysis.

Renowned psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung delivered a series of lectures that outlined the future of his work—including a decisive break from the theories of his friend and colleague, Sigmund Freud.

On Oct. 26, Fordham and the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association of New York (JPA) will mark 100 years since Jung’s defining lectures with a two-day conference that will demonstrate Jung’s impact on psychoanalysis over the last century.

Jung in the Academy and Beyond will kick off with a free public lecture on Friday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m., in Keating First Auditorium, by Joseph Cambray, Ph.D., president of the International Association for Analytic Psychology and a faculty member at Harvard Medical School, titled “Jung, Science, and German Romanticism: A Contemporary Perspective.”

The conference will continue on Saturday, Oct. 27, beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Tognino Hall, Duane Library, featuring keynote speakers: Eugene Taylor, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Saybrook University and senior psychologist with the psychiatry service at Massachusetts General Hospital; Ann B. Ulanov, Ph.D., the Christiane Brooks Johnson professor of psychiatry and religion at Union Theological Seminary; and Martin A. Schulman, Ph.D., former editor of The Psychoanalytic Review, which published Jung’s original lectures in its inaugural edition.
