Our spring conference takes its name from the 1922 poem by T.S. Eliot, “The Wasteland,” a piece that bridges modern and postmodern literature. The phrase evokes imagery of a vessel, once thought unsinkable, lying in pieces, moved to and fro by the surf, its once hidden interior exposed. The past shatters as it collides with the present, but out of the fragments that remain something new can be discovered or re-created. More is learned, and old knowledge can become known anew. Out of the “fragments” of the past, we will explore the present-day realities and future possibilities for analytical psychology and psychoanalysis.
Today, all forms of depth psychology bear witness to global cultural, economic and ecological upheaval. The inherited social fabric has become frayed and a radical questioning of the conventional order is taking place—particularly in terms of the understanding of self and other, gender, economic disparities, social justice, and the ecological environment. This conference brings together thoughtful and creative voices from analytical psychology, psychoanalysis, philosophy, and literary criticism to present their work and enter into dialogue with each other and with all those in attendance, as we explore how to refocus, enliven and recreate depth psychology in a new century. Through presentations, discussion panels and break-out groups this conference offers an opportunity to rethink our relationship with theory and clinical practice.
Lunch will be served on Saturday.

CONFERENCE PRESENTATIONS INCLUDE:
FROM MIND TO WORLD, FROM DRIVE TO AFFECTIVITY: A PHENOMENOLOGICAL–CONTEXTUALIST PSYCHOANALYTIC PERSPECTIVE
The keynote presentation of Fragments Shored Against the Ruins will be given by Dr. Stolorow, a leading voice for decades, both nationally and internationally, in the development of self psychology theory, intersubjectivity, relational theory, and, most recently, phenomenological contextualism in psychoanalysis. He will present the evolution of the basic ideas in intersubjective systems theory leading up to the development and articulation of the phenomenological-contextualist psychoanalytic perspective, a framework for clinical work that investigates and illuminates worlds of emotional experience within intersubjective, relational contexts.
Robert D. Stolorow, PhD, is a founding faculty member of both the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Los Angeles, and the Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, New York City. He is the author of World, Affectivity, Trauma: Heidegger and Post-Cartesian Psychoanalysis (Routledge, 2011) and Trauma and Human Existence: Autobiographical, Psychoanalytic, and Philosophical Reflections (Routledge, 2007) and coauthor of eight other books.
