Registration Information

The registration fee for the conference is $265.00, which includes a one-year subscription to American Imago or Literature and Medicine, or $235.00 for people who already subscribe to either of these journals.  The registration fee includes all meals, from a welcoming reception Thursday evening, through breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Friday and Saturday, to breakfast on Sunday. The conference banquet will take place on Friday evening, and there will be a poolside "Jamaican Me Crazy" dinner followed by a dance on Saturday night.  The conference site is the beautiful Gainesville Paramount Resort and Conference Center.  Room reservations at only $69.00 per night should be made directly with the hotel.

The Friday and Saturday morning plenary sessions are free to members of the University of Florida community.  It is also possible for Gainesville residents to register separately for the Friday night banquet and symposium, featuring Professor Frans de Waal, Director of the Yerkes Primate Laboratory at Emory University, for $35.00.  

All participants of the conference are encouraged to submit papers on any aspect of literature, psychoanalysis, and the arts and sciences of healing.  However, it is not necessary to submit a paper to participate in the conference.  All papers will be accepted and, based on their topic, assigned to a seminar on either Friday or Saturday afternoon led by one of the plenary speakers. The papers should be sent as e-mail attachments to Peter L. Rudnytsky at  All papers must be received by February 1, 2004.  

To register for the conference, send an e-mail to Peter Rudnytsky with the title of the paper you intend to submit, any preferences you may have for a seminar leader, and indicating the journal to which you would like to subscribe (or are already a subscriber).  Please also send a check for the appropriate amount, made out to Psychoanalysis and Narrative Medicine Conference, to Peter Rudnytsky at: Department of English / P.O. Box 117310 / University of Florida / Gainesville, FL 32611.  

Please note that you are encouraged to register for the conference right away even if your paper is not yet ready.  As papers are received, they will be posted on-line on the Conference Papers page of this website.  We will provisionally group papers as they come in into clusters, though the final list of the participants in each seminar will not be available until February 1, 2004.  It is expected that seminar members will have read all the papers in that seminar and be prepared to discuss their own work and that of their colleagues.  A selection of papers from the conference will later be published in special issues of American Imago and Literature and Medicine.
