Join Susan Rowland and Department of Psychosocial and Psychosocial Studies for an open seminar on the new paradigm of arts-based research.

Arts-based research (ABR) is a new paradigm alongside the scientific method and qualitative or quantitative methodologies. While ‘new’ in the sense of being recently discovered by the academy, it resembles the ancient practices of alchemy and magic.

Mostly developed in the social sciences based research, 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. Jungian ABR is innately multiple, multicultural, flexible and communicative. It is also astoundingly apposite for Jung in the 21st century since it is doing therapy with the collective, the aim of many recent initiatives.

Speaker Susan Rowland will explore this topic using her book "Jungian arts-based research and “the nuclear enchantment of New Mexico”.
