2005 International Conference of
the Jungian Society for Scholarly Study
The 2005 Conference will be held at the University of Rhode Island, Providence, RI.
Thursday-Saturday, August 4-6, 2005.
Providence is the capital city of the State of Rhode Island and has undergone a remarkable renewal over the past 10 years. Called “The Renaissance City” by such publications as Newsweek, it has become a center for art, education, first-class dining, professional theatre, and commerce. Within walking distance are several excellent restaurants, including McCormick & Schmick’s, the Federal Reserve, India, and L’Epicureo (which is the restaurant in The Hotel Providence), and such delis and pubs as Blake’s Pub, Union Street Tavern, Dean’s Deli, and Tazza’s. Just three blocks away is the newly opened Providence Place Mall, which includes both a National Amusements multiplex and an IMAX theatre. A quick bus ride up famously steep College Hill will bring you to Thayer Street where students and faculty of Brown University and the RI School of Design mingle with residents at top restaurants, shops, and bookstores.
The Conference Hotel:
We have arranged conference-rated housing at The Hotel Providence (www.TheHotelProvidence.com). Please peruse their web site to view the hotel. The hotel is described as a “European-style boutique hotel” and the rooms offer modern amenities with turn-of-the-century décor. The rooms have a king or queen sized bed only (they have only 4-5 rooms with two beds, but these may be more expensive). So, if you are sharing, you need to understand that you will have only one bed in the room.
You must contact the hotel directly to make your reservations. If you choose to call, please inform the reservations clerk that you are part of The Jungian Society Conference in order to be given the discounted rate.
Keynote Speaker and Dinner:
Our Keynote Dinner will be at McCormick & Schmick’s Restaurant. Your Registration Fee in part pays for this dinner. We have our own private dining room with the bar just outside our dining area. (It is a cash bar, which is your only expense at this dinner.) Our Keynote Speaker is Anne Back Price, a Jungian analyst associated with Brown University whose book, Grief Dreams: How They Help Us Heal After the Death of a Loved One, which she co-authored, was published in March, 2005.
