Dreams seem the most private territory of experience. Yet Dreaming Culture argues they are a space in which we practice, consider, question, and adapt cultural models of the self, gender, sexuality, relationships, and agency. Through an innovative "dream ethnography" from college students in the northwestern U.S., this book contributes to recent research on dreaming and the brain in psychology and continuing research on dreaming and the self in clinical psychology and psychological anthropology. Dreaming Culture uses critical theory to understand power relations embedded in cultural models, a perspective often lacking in cognitive anthropology and in psychological studies of self and mind.

In the late nineteenth century, dreams became the subject of scientific study for the first time, after thousands of years of being considered a primarily spiritual phenomenon. Before Freud and the rise of psychoanalytic interpretation as the dominant mode of studying dreams, an international group of physicians, physiologists, and psychiatrists pioneered scientific models of dreaming. Collecting data from interviews, structured observation, surveys, and their own dream diaries, these scholars produced a large body of early research on the sleeping brain in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This book uncovers an array of case studies from this overlooked period of dream scholarship. With contributors working across the disciplines of psychology, history, literature, and cultural studies, it highlights continuities and ruptures in the history of scientific inquiry into dreams.

The Confessions of My Youth

Nonetheless, I used to go up to an isolated field and kick the ball, dreaming about kicking for Notre Dame. When I got back to the States and asked about it, I was told that so—and—so had secured the kicking position.

From being a dirt farmer in South America to the heights of California Society, from a promiscuous lifestyle to the peace of Christian life, this is the story of the first thirty-four years of my life. While some sought money, fame, or education, or some other goal, I sought the experience of life, and to the best of my ability, I was a seeker of the Supreme Power in that experience. This story is factual according to the perceptions Ive encountered and remembered. In a phrase, my father, Howard Orville Caldwell, lived the Grapes of Wrath. He was born in Oklahoma, and during the Great Depression, when his fathers job at the local zinc smelter ended, the family moved to South California: Grandpa, Grandma and the three children. That was in the thirties. Dad grew up, went to school, and worked in South California when Los Angeles had only a few hundred thousand people. There was a definite division between rich and poor. Marlon Brando, then Bud Brando, was in the same public speaking class as my father in junior high school. Marlon was one of the rich, Dad was of the poor. This story begins there.
