Conjur, Obeah, and Santeria Mythologies in Afro-Caribbean Modernism

A webinar with Dr. Evans Lansing Smith

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 3:00-4:00pm PST

This presentation explores mythological imagery in the paintings of Wifredo Lam and Romare Beardon. Dr. Evans Lansing Smith has degrees from Williams College, Antioch International, and The Claremont Graduate School. He is the author of ten books and numerous articles on comparative literature and mythology, and has taught at colleges in Switzerland, Maryland, Texas, and California, and at the C.G. Jung Institute in Kusnacht. In the late 1970s, he traveled with Joseph Campbell on study tours of Northern France, Egypt, and Kenya, with a focus on the Arthurian Romances of the Middle Ages and the Mythologies of the Ancient World.

As the only doctoral program in the country dedicated to the exploration of human experience through the interdisciplinary and multicultural study of myth, ritual, religion, literature, depth psychology, and art, the Mythological Studies Program cultivates scholarship, self-inquiry, and imagination in those who seek to understand and express the depths of the psyche. The program is richly informed by the pioneering works of Sigmund Freud, C.G. Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz, James Hillman, and mythologist Joseph Campbell, who taught that myth has the power to touch our deepest creative energies, and to generate symbolic images that confer significance upon the complexity of modern life and history.
