Bayer Presented at American Psychological Association

Betty Bayer, associate professor of women's studies, was invited to present at two sessions of the recent annual meeting of the American Psychological Association in Chicago. As a panelist on a main APA thematic program on creativity, “Creative Research Strategies, Qualitative Research, and the Human Sciences,” Bayer presented on the history of research methods in social psychology, using her own course here as illustrative of a venerated social psychology research tradition historically. Her second paper was “Life beyond flesh: Cyberselves and the other,” and was part of the symposium “Theory and Praxis of the Other — Levinas, Psychoanalysis, Postmodernism.”

In June, Bayer facilitated an invited two-hour workshop with John Carson (University of Michigan) “Theorizing Gender and Race in the History of the Human Sciences” at the annual meeting of Cheiron: International Society for the History of Social and Behavioral Sciences. Workshop panelists (Mari Jo Buhle (Brown Univeristy); Nadine Weidman (Harvard University); Robert Nye (Oregon State University); and Henry Minton (University of Windsor) along with facilitators and scholar John Jackson prepared a bibliography for participants. Faculty interested in obtaining a copy of this bibliography should contact Bayer (bayer@hws.edu).
