The University of California Interdisciplinary Psychoanalytic Consortium (UCIPC) announces up to two $10,000 Hayman Fellowships to aid psychoanalytically informed research on the literary, cultural and humanistic expressions of genocide, racism, ethnocentrism, nationalism, inter-ethnic violence, and the Holocaust.

The Endowment supports studies in the psychodynamics of personal, group, and international crisis management, de-escalation, conflict resolution, and peace processes. The fellowships are intended to provide for dissertation research in scholarly resources, archives, libraries, academic contacts, and to provide support for the final writing for publication of a project whose major research has been completed.

Applicants should be advanced to candidacy for the doctorate in their graduate studies or be in a psychiatric residency or fellowship program.

There is no application form. Applicants should send two copies of the following:

1) A current Curriculum Vita including a bibliography.

2) A proposal describing their project and its aims, when and where it would be undertaken (not to exceed 5 single-spaced pages) sent as an attachment.

3) One letter of reference by faculty sponsors familiar with their work.

DEADLINE: Applications must be received by April 18, 2014.  Send applications to Professor Naomi Janowitz (nhjanowitz@ucdavis.edu). [Subject Heading of email: Hayman Dissertation Fellowship. Any questions may be addressed to Dr. Janowitz.]

Winners of the fellowship will be announced at the ANNUAL MEETING OF THE UC INTERDISCIPLINARY PSYCHOANALYTIC CONSORTIUM May 2-4, 2014, UCLA’s Lake Arrowhead Conference Center.

(NOTE: Applicants for the Dissertation Award prize are encouraged to apply for a Conference Stipend also in the event that they do not receive the Dissertation Award but would like to attend the conference.)

PINC Visiting Scholars Program: Duncan Cartwright on Pathological Mental States from a Bionian Perspective

The Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California (PINC) Visiting Scholars Program will be held in May and June.  This year we will be featuring South African  psychoanalyst Duncan Cartwright.  This is a rare chance to become acquainted with his important work on pathological mental states and his model of containing states of mind developed from a contemporary Bionian perspective. His work is very interesting for both clinicians and academics, and this is a rare opportunity to meet and learn about his work. (See Attached flyer)
