The Department of Psychology and The International Association for Jungian Studies present


The spread of the COVID-19 virus has lead to the move to online classes throughout Pittsburgh's Colleges and Universities. It has also lead to the cancelation of the IAJS / Duquesne University conference.
The IAJS Board will be discussing the issues at its meeting March 15.

With sincere regret,

Roger Brooke, on behalf of the University.

Jungian Psychology and the Human Sciences

Psychology as a human science is a broad field in which there are several traditions, most notably psychoanalysis, phenomenology and hermeneutics, feminist and other critical, deconstructive approaches. Most Jungian publications now reflect these influences as well. 

Both Duquesne University and Jungian psychology have been pioneers in the development of psychology as an indigenously human science, in the traditions known as the Geisteswissenschaften. Both are concerned primarily with questions of meaning in symptoms and psychological phenomena, the nature of psychological evidence for descriptive and interpretative methods, self-reflection on our own foundations, our embeddedness in history, culture, and language, what it means to be a
person, embodied, gendered, and conscious. 

This conference is an opportunity for these mutual influences to be explored and celebrated, and for us to spend time with others whose work we have enjoyed.

Speakers and panelists include:

  • Andrew Samuels (keynote)
  • Lucy Huskinson
  • Robert Romanyshyn
  • Fanny Brewster
  • Steve Myers
  • Jon Mills
  • Stanton Marlan
  • Kwame Scruggs
  • Robert Segal
  • Robin Brooks
  • Mark Saban
  • and many more!


  • $290 Registration fee. The gala dinner is included in the cost.

  • $165 for non-Duquesne students as well as candidates in training at a Jungian Institute. The gala dinner is included in the cost.

  • $75 per day for single day attendance. (Dinner not included.)

  • Free for Duquesne faculty and students. (Dinner not included; paid for separately.)

AFTER THURSDAY MARCH 26TH, registration for the whole conference WILL NOT INCLUDE DINNER.
That is because catering requires a week's notice. You can still register for the conference until the start of the conference on April 2nd, and you can register for any day during the conference on that day at per-day rates.
