Event description

Description

The Jungian Psychoanalytic Association believes that an important part of its mandate is to name what is unconscious, to offer a lens and a space in which to engage respectfully with the other in ourselves and also with one another, and to engage with the world at large, beyond the confines of clinical work.

Our conference addresses urgent problems of both outer and inner displacement: mass migrations caused by wars, climate change and economic instability, and the defense mechanisms that induce us to scapegoat the vulnerable other to avoid addressing our own deep unremembered fears. With displacement come losses: the refugee’s loss of home and of a sense of belonging, but also the scapegoater’s loss of humanity, loss of soul.

We have forgotten that the archetypal American is a displaced person. In this conference, we intend to take up the concept of displacement and reposition it at the center of an interdisciplinary discussion about identity and memory. How do these problems manifest in our clinical spaces, in therapeutic work, in support work, in public policy, in humanitarian action, in dreams?

Four speakers from different fields will discuss the theme of displacement in lectures and a concluding panel discussion:

• Dr. Renos Papadopoulos is the Director of the Centre for Trauma, Asylum and Refugees, MA/PhD in Refugee Care, at the University of Essex. He is an IAAP Jungian Psychoanalyst and Honorary Clinical Psychologist and Systemic Psychotherapist at the Tavistock Clinic, London. He is the editor of The Handbook of Jungian Psychology: Theory, Practice and Applications.

• Maaza Mengiste is a novelist and essayist. Her debut novel, Beneath the Lion’s Gaze, was selected by the Guardian as one of the 10 best contemporary African books and named one of the best books of 2010 by The Christian Science Monitor and The Boston Globe. Both her fiction and nonfiction examine individual lives at stake during migration, war, and exile, and consider the intersections of memory, photographic image and violence.

• David Rieff is a New York-based non-fiction writer and policy analyst. His books have focused on issues of immigration, international conflict, and humanitarianism. He has published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The Atlantic, and internationally in Le Monde and El Pais. His latest book is entitled In Praise of Forgetting: Historical Memory and Its Ironies.

• Leslye Noyes MDiv PsychD is an IAAP Jungian Psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City. She is a member of the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association where she teaches, supervises and currently serves as Dean of Candidates. She will speak to the phenomenon of displacement in the clinical setting.
