Gender Symp.: "The Men in Rollo May's Life"

Fri, October 23, 2009 | GAR 1.102

3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

The Symposium for Gender, History, and Sexuality presents a talk by Dr. Robert Abzug, Oliver H. Radkey Regents Professor of History and director of the Schusterman Center for Jewish studies, entitled "The Men in Rollo May's Life:  The Rich and Complicated Male World of a 20th Century Psychologist".

“The Men in Rollo May’s Life” will address the deep personal relationships May formed in the male world of the psychological profession and open a discussion on the complex ties between May’s personal and professional lives.  Known as a major figure in humanistic psychology and a force in the shifting profession, especially surrounding issues of gender and sexuality, May’s rich personal life offers many points of correlation to developments in his professional career and philosophy, but beyond description, how should historians and biographers discuss these intersections?
