This Talk explores some possible contributions analytical psychology may make to

theorising racial hybridity. Already a ‘hybrid psychology’, Lu suggests that analytical

psychology is particularly well-positioned to speak to the specific experiences and challenges

posed by multiraciality. In particular, Lu critically reflects on his hopes, fears,

and fantasies that have arisen with the birth of his multiracial children, which may

in turn act as a springboard to greater depth psychological reflections on the unique

and equally ‘typical’ experience of raising mixed-raced children.  This paper critically

assesses possible ways in which racial hybridity may be theorised from a Jungian perspective

and argues that a Post-Jungian approach must reflect the flexibility and fluidity

of hybridity itself.

Dr Lu is a Senior Lecturer, and upcoming Chair of the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, at 

University of Essex, UK
