Susan Rowland, Ph.D., Chair of Engaged Humanities & the Creative Life, has degrees from the Universities of Oxford, London and Newcastle, UK, and was the first Chair of the International Association of Jungian Studies (IAJS). She is author of many studies of Jung, literary theory and gender including C.G. Jung and Literary Theory (1999), Jung: A Feminist Revision (2002), Jung as a Writer (2005) and also edited Psyche and the Arts (2008). Another recent book is C.G. Jung and the Humanities (2010), showing how Jung's work is a response to the creative, psychological, spiritual, philosophical and ecological crises of our age. In 2012, Her book, The Ecocritical Psyche: Literature, Complexity Evolution and Jung was published by Routledge, showing how the Jungian symbol is a portal to nature. Susan's work is not so much "about" Jung as an attempt to develop his special insights into myth, technology, the feminine, nature and the numinous for today's wounded world.
