Max Cavitch Receives Excellence in Journalism Prize

Max Cavitch, Associate Professor of English

Max Cavitch, Associate Professor of English, has received the 2022 Excellence in Journalism Prize from the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) for his blog, “Psyche on Campus.” The blog, which focuses on "teaching psychoanalysis in the undergraduate classroom (and beyond)," was recognized for “connecting psychoanalysis to conversations and issues of our time and highlighting psychosocial insights in an accessible form that invites participation and readership, including from undergraduates studying a diverse array of subjects.”

Cavitch's areas of expertise include American and African American literatures and cultures, cinema studies, poetry and poetics, and psychoanalytic studies. His first book, American Elegy: The Poetry of Mourning from the Puritans to Whitman, is a study of mourning poetry in 18th- and 19th-century North America.

Founded in 1911, APsaA is the oldest national psychoanalytic organization in the nation. As a professional organization for psychoanalysts, it focuses on education, research, and membership development.
