What is History of Psychology?
Following the distinction between little-p psychology and big-P Psychology, this project approaches the History of Psychology as a “doing” separate from its “subject.” The topic is therefore more "historiography" than "history." Methods are both critical and quantitative (viz. network analysis). But the goal, ultimately, is to provide the means to characterize an organized body of knowledge --- a discipline --- using tools that show its features rather than simply reporting on them.

Other remarks on education
- I am new to the department, so I haven't had time to recruit yet. But my explicit intent with this project is to develop new methods that can be used to inform Bachelor and Master theses. The methods are general, although my particular content area is History.
