Katherine Mansfield Studies

 

(THE PEER-REVIEWED YEARBOOK OF THE KATHERINE MANSFIELD SOCIETY)

 

KATHERINE MANSFIELD AND PSYCHOLOGY

 

Guest Editor: Professor Clare Hanson (University of Southampton, UK)

 

In a letter of October 1920, Katherine Mansfield distanced herself from the
Œmushroom growth of ³cheap psychoanalysis²¹ but in the next breath affirmed
her belief that Œwith an artist one has to allow ­ oh tremendously for the
subconscious element in his work¹.  As this suggests, her engagement with
the models of subjectivity emerging from contemporary psychology was both
complex and ambivalent. This volume invites papers that engage with all
aspects of the interplay between Mansfield¹s fiction and contemporary
psychology and psychoanalysis.
 
Possible topics include but are not limited to:
 
the subconscious and the unconscious                             popular
