Paper proposals are invited for a proposed panel: Beyond the Freud
Principle: British Modernists' Engagement with Depth Psychology, at
the 2006 Modernist Studies Association Conference in Tulsa, OK from
October 19-22.

Virginia Woolf reserved for the moderns an appreciation of "the dark
places of psychology." All too frequently literary historians, critics
and biographers have suffered from the compulsion to repeat the orthodox
view associating those dark places with Freudian psychoanalysis. This
panel seeks to interrogate British modernists' engagement with
eclectic depth psychologies, or as I have termed them, dynamic
psychologies, including, but not limited to those propounded by William
Brown, David Eder, Bernard Hart, Pierre Janet, William McDougall,
Frederic Myers, and James Sully.

Please send a 300 word abstract together with a brief CV to George
Johnson by April 15th, 2006.
