The Jungian Strand in Transatlantic Modernism
CARL GUSTAV JUNG
Jay Sherry grew up in Ohio where his sense of the Native American presence in the landscape led to an interest in history. He graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in Foreign Service; while there he discovered the work of Carl Jung and decided to study psychology. After receiving his M.A. from the Graduate Faculty of the New School for Social Research (New York) he went to Switzerland where he taught history and attended classes at the Jung Institute in Zurich. He is an educator and an independent historian of psychoanalysis who has lectured widely and written for a variety of psychoanalytic publications. He holds a Ph.D. from the Freie Universität Berlin and his book Carl Gustav Jung, Avant-Garde Conservative was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2010. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter.
