SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF PSYCHOLOGY (Division 26, American Psychological Association) CALL FOR PAPERS: 114th Annual Meeting, August 10-13, 2006, in New Orleans, Louisiana SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Friday, December 2nd, 2005
I would like to announce the first call for papers for next year’s 114th APA convention. After some uncertainty over location and dates due to Hurricane Katrina’s devastation, it seems we will be meeting in New Orleans next year after all. Any papers, symposia, posters, conversation hours, and workshops related to any aspect of the history of psychology may be submitted. Symposium proposals are strongly encouraged, but proposals for individual papers will also be considered. A $200 award is given for the best student paper (students must indicate if they wish to be considered for the award with their program submission).
In anticipation, we are fortunate to have secured esteemed speakers for the Mary Whiton Calkins and Wallace Russell lectures. Our Calkins speaker will be Joanne Meyerowitz, Professor of History and American Studies at Yale University, and past editor of the Journal of American History. Dr. Meyerowitz is the author of Women Adrift: Independent Wage Earners in Chicago, 1880-1930 (1988) and How Sex Changed: A History of Transsexuality in the U.S. (2002), and the editor of Not June Cleaver: Women and Gender in Postwar America, 1945-1960 (1994) and History and September 11th (2003). Her current project examines theories of human differences in mid-20th century U.S. For more information please see http://www.yale.edu/history/faculty/meyerowitz.html. Our Russell speaker will be Leila Zenderland, Professor of American Studies at California State University in Fullerton, CA. Dr. Zenderland is the author of Measuring Minds: Henry Herbert Goddard and the Origins of American Intelligence Testing (1998) and of articles and book chapters on Goddard, eugenics, and intelligence testing. She is currently working on a new book, tentatively titled The Heredity-Environment Debates: Scientific Proofs and Popular Persuasion, 1918-1945.
