New! History of Psychology Virtual Workshop

AHP readers will be interested in a newly organized ongoing series of history of psychology virtual workshops. Full details below.

History of Psychology Virtual Workshop

The Workshop aims to create an inter- and multi-disciplinary space for pursuing theoretically-informed, critical histories of psychology. We welcome scholars at all career stages and all disciplines, including those in related fields concerned with the history, sociology and ethnography of the human sciences. The content of monthly meetings will vary session to session based on member interest. The goal is to offer a mix of a reading group of critical texts, panel presentations on a common theme, and workshop opportunities for works-in-progress.
The first meeting (1pm EST, August 12th, 2020) will revolve around a discussion of the following texts and planning future events.

Tuck, E. (2009). Suspending damage: A letter to communities. Harvard Educational Review, 79(3), 409-428.

Mascarenhas, M. (2018). White space and dark matter: Prying open the black box of STS. Science, Technology, & Human Values, 43(2), 151-170.

If you would like to attend this workshop and/or sign up for notifications of future events throughout the year, please register at our eventbrite page.
