Lecture

Susan Rowland

Susan Rowland's lecture will explore Shakespeare's pivotal, cultural, and psychological role in founding and funding diverse American identities. In so doing she will reveal similar Shakespearean and Jungian approaches to symbols, gender, and war. If Jung reading Shakespeare can supply his psychological embodying, then so can Shakespeare read Jung as an essentially dramatic attempt to rebalance the modern and American psyche.

Susan Rowland, Ph.D., is Chair of MA Engaged Humanities and the Creative Life at Pacifica Graduate Institute, California, and formerly Professor of English and Jungian Studies at the University of Greenwich, UK. She is author of a number of books on literary theory, gender, and Jung including Jung as a Writer (2005); Jung: A Feminist Revision (2002); C. G. Jung in the Humanities (2010), and The Ecocritical Psyche: Literature, Evolutionary Complexity and Jung (2012). She also researches detective fiction with a book, From Agatha Christie to Ruth Rendell (2001) and NEW in 2015, The Sleuth and the Goddess: Hestia, Artemis, Athena and Aphrodite in Women's Detective Fiction. Currently working on a project on Dionysus, Jung, Hillman, and disciplines, she is also exploring new discourses in the humanities and creativity in post-graduate education in her program. In addition she teaches an online interactive public program on Shakespeare called "Shakespeare in Depth."
