Abstract of the Lecture

Matthew J. Brown will discuss a curious case from the history of psychology, the work of William Moulton Marston. Marston was an important experimental and applied psychologist from the early 20th Century, whose work had an explicitly and radically feminist bent and with broad implications for gender, sexuality, and psycho-emotional health. Marston also created the famous comics character Wonder Woman, and fed ideas from his psychological research directly into the comics he wrote. Professor Brown will discuss the case and its implications for philosophy, science, education, and policy.
