Bangalore International Centre

Event Description

Animus, Psyche and CultureA Jungian Revision is a contemporary account of Carl Jung’s concept of the contra-sexual psyche, its potencies and threats, and its individuating telos.

Sulagna Sengupta’s work encapsulates her journey with Jungian psychology, a critical part of which was uncovering Jung’s history with India. The contra-sexual animus finds a special place in Jung’s work and also in Sengupta’s journey – its discovery, manifestation, development and integration into the author’s inner world.

Oral Historian and author, Dr. Indira Chowdhury will dialogue with Sengupta to locate the nuances of this journey, the animation of Jung’s psychological ideas in the contemporary world and the unique positioning of Jung’s work between cultures that facilitates the emergence of new knowledge. Their conversation will explore the ways in which Sengupta discovered previously ignored archival material on Jung’s travel to India, her own journey with Jungian concepts and how she gained insight into their relevance to contemporary life in India.
