The Aim of the Conference

This conference is part of a wider impulse towards dialogue between analysts, academics and others who work with Jung's ideas. In terms of our own region, back in the early 1990s David Tacey and La Trobe University hosted a conference which sought to open up this discussion, with Andrew Samuels as keynote speaker. In July 2002 Essex University in the UK hosted the first International Academic Conference of Analytical Psychology, out of which formed the IAJS (the International Association for Jungian Studies), an organisation which many of you will be familiar with, and some will be members. While not directly related to any of these projects, this conference is ANZSJA's contribution to developing and extending these dialogues at a regional level.

So that the rich creativity of our many distinguished contributors not be stifled by the time constraints which we must operate under, we have decided to adopt a "Discussion" format for the Panel sections of the proceedings. The idea is to give the audience both maximum exposure to, and opportunity for participation with a range of eminent thinkers/presenters/practitioners. The model is a kind of SBS/Jennifer Brockie/Insight format adapted to our purposes. Consequently, panel participants need to come ready to make a couple of short, incisive points about the subject under discussion by their panel. The only person who will get to speak directly to the topic is the introductory speaker (who only has 5 - 6 minutes). The rest of the discussion will be orchestrated around the panelists making a series of pithy points which are intended to act as jumping off points for engagement with the audience, and/or with other panel members.

This does mean that all panelists will need to be very mindful of time constraints when making contributions to these discussion: we will all need to be disciplined so as not to over-ride our co-contributors' times, opportunities, and intents. We do, however, appreciate that many of the contributors have substantive contributions to make on these topics and encourage you to submit them for inclusion in our ISBN Peer-Review Proceedings.

In the same spirit of wanting to support further and fuller discussion than time constraints will allow, we will also have an on-line Bulletin, with a discussion forum and all papers, available from October 1st. This will allow everyone to savour your writings at leisure even prior to the Conference itself. We sincerely hope that this format will allow everyone to at least voice something of their potential contribution and thus make a beginning on what promises to be a rich and enlivening dialogue.
