Time: March 4, 2021 from 6:00-9:00pm PT
Meeting ID: 934 2398 7512
Arts-based research is a new paradigm alongside the scientific method and qualitative or quantitative methodologies. While ‘new’ in the sense of recently discovered by the academy, it resembles the ancient practices of alchemy and magic. Mostly developed in the Social Sciences, ABR, is yet to discover the full potential of depth psychology while Jungians have not extended their fascination with art into the powerful domain of arts-based research. In fact, Jungian ABR is astoundingly apposite for Jung in the 21stcentury since it isdoing therapy with the collective, the aim of many recent initiatives. Jungian ABR is also innately multiple, multicultural, flexible and communicative. For all these reasons, the book not only is why we should, and how we can, do Jungian ABR research, it also offers a complete project as an example (PhD sized). Hence I will finish by showing parts of Nuclear Enchantment to demonstrate how this paradigm treats the collective. I also hope for lots of lively discussion.
