The Journal's Homecoming
American Imago is returning home. With our next issue, Murray Schwartz, with the support of the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, will assume the editorship of the journal in the city to which Hanns Sachs brought Imago from Vienna in 1939. The journal's homecoming is noteworthy, and it has been a great honor and pleasure to participate in it. I look forward to seeing American Imago continue to develop and flourish in the location that was Imago‘s first American refuge and that now once more provides the site for its future.
Johns Hopkins University Press, through its Project MUSE, has generously supported this move and will continue to sustain the journal as it goes forward. Through many years, the Press's ongoing commitment has made it possible for American Imago to thrive on the difficult terrain of scholarly publishing.
My deep gratitude goes to American Imago's Associate Editors, Editorial Advisory Board, and Managing Editors, who during the past seven years have upheld the journal's legacies and visions in a lineage going back to Sigmund Freud's founding of the journal in Vienna. That lineage—maintained and enriched by the Editors who preceded me—has for over a century and across several continents bridged research in psychology, the humanities, and the social sciences.
My profound thanks go to American Imago's authors. Their essays, produced from multiple disciplinary and scientific perspectives, have carried on the project of psychoanalysis to trace the diverse associations and distinct contexts from which mental creations derive meaning. Starting from Freud's emphasis on the over-determined nature of the activities of mind and brain, their researches and writings have advanced our insights into the conscious and unconsciousprocesses by which psychological phenomena, social forces, and historical experiences shape and influence each other.
