Special Event: Rethinking the Gender Issues: A Jungian Approach, Manisha Roy, Ph.D.

Event Details

In this lecture I shall try to highlight the salient points of my life-long research and writings on gender issues and modern women’s identity in particular. Drawing from my research in cultural anthropology (Bengali Women. 1976. ’93, U. of Chicago) and forty years of experience as a Jungian psychotherapist (Women, Stereotypes and Archetypes, 2019, Chiron), I would like to show how Carl Jung’s concept of contra-sexual archetype can help modern women in any culture sort out some of their identity problems as societies and cultures evolve politically, legally and technologically.
