What exactly is JUNGIANEUM/Yearbook? It is a yearbook, of course! Is it also a monograph, an almanac, a journal, and a poetry book? Indeed!
JUNGIANEUM/Yearbook expands our thinking with papers and poetry informed by analytical psychology and neo-Jungian studies. Its uniqueness and importance to the Jungian community lies in the work of the individuals contributing.
JUNGIANEUM/Yearbook is divided into three parts: papers, poetry, and a Rite de sortie.
Many themes are conveyed in this issue (2022): the Russian invasion of Ukraine; the power of a cultural complex in Israel; the Shakespearean concept of “Time is out of joint” and Pasolini’s Oedipus Re; AIDS, death and the analyst; transgender individuation; sufferings and individuation; personal memories of the Yom Kippur War; the patient/analyst confrontation in the analytical room and the problematic behavior of the analyst; mothers and fathers, leaving, returning, devotion, new birth, the wait and the end of certainties.
JUNGIANEUM/Yearbook is one of many initiatives by Jungianeum: Contemporary Initiatives for Analytical Psychology and Neo-Jungian Studies. Under this umbrella, since 2022, Stefano Carpani developed a series of initiatives called: JUNGIANEUM/books, JUNGIANEUM/talks, JUNGIANEUM/ masterclasses, JUNGIANEUM/biennale and more. In summer 2022, in partnership with Chiron Publications, Carpani launched a series called JUNGIANEUM/books: Re-Covered Classics in Analytical Psychology, aimed at (re)publishing masterpieces in analytical psychology that, for different reasons, are out of the market and find difficulty in getting (re)published. As of January 2023, PSYCHOSOCIAL WEDNESDAYS were incorporated under the umbrella of JUNGIANEUM/talks. In September 2023, Pacifica Graduate Institute (CA/USA) and Jungianeum will release a PGI Graduate Certificate Course: Contemporary Analytical Psychology and Neo-Jungian Studies: The Relevance of C.G. Jung to the Socio-Cultural Challenges of the 21st Century.
As per Carpani’s Youtube interviews, published books, and papers, these initiatives will continue to help Jung’s psychology become visible and audible, therefore, impactful for individuals and collectives, who benefit, respectively, from Jungian therapy and theory in shaping policy and society.
