Writing and Talks

I have presented my work to departments of psychology and economics, to conferences in histories of science, psychology, business, and capitalism. In September 2017, I will be giving a paper at the Atlantic Schools of Business Conference, in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. I will also be presenting at the Society for the History of Technology in October, in Philadelphia.

My article, “Managing Intuition,” was just published in Business History Review as part of an invited roundtable on postwar American management.

I reviewed Susan Lamb’s Pathologist of the Mind: Adolf Meyer and the Origins of American Psychiatry,”  for the Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences. The book was named Cheiron Best Book of 2016.

I wrote a guest post for Hidden Persuaders, a blog on the history of Cold War psychology, which examines how workplace motivational psychologists faced charges of “brainwashing.”

After researching in the Hagley business history archives, I wrote about my findings in a piece called “The Manager as Motivator.”

As part of my involvement with the University of Toronto Scientific Instrument Collection, I wrote about their fascinating collection of psychological tests for their online exhibit.
