Call for Papers:
Psychobiographies and the Autobiographies of Psychobiographers

(Articles are to be up to 3,000 words including your biography ending in your email address)
Chapters to be submitted by September 1, 2024

As a companion volume to The Many Roads of the Builders of Psychohistory (2021), I am collecting chapters for Psychobiographies and the Autobiographies of Psychobiographers. On a space-available basis, some of these psychobiographies and autobiographies will be published, perhaps in shorter form, in Clio’s Psyche. My hope is that members of the Psychohistory Forum’s Research and Publication Group will make sufficient submissions so that in 2024 we can have a special fourth issue of Clio’s Psyche on psychobiography.

In addition, it is my expectation that at least a few members of the Psychobiography Reading Group and participants in my virtual courses, An In-Depth Understanding of Famous and Ordinary People Through the Art of Psychobiography (Object Relations Institute) and Creativity, Psychohistory, and Psychobiography (New Jersey Institute for Training in Psychoanalysis), will submit articles/chapters. It will also be quite good if admirers of William McKinley “Mac” Runyan, who participated in his Festschrift or are part of the Bay State Psychobiography Group, contribute to the special psychobiography issue and the book.

I hope you will consider joining in this endeavor and share this Call for Chapters/Clio Articles with your friends and colleagues.

Best regards, Paul
