Fathali Moghaddam: How Psychologists Failed


March 6, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Location: Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

The Social Sciences Forum presents the Distinguished Lecture in Psychology, featuring Fathali Moghaddam, Professor, Department of Psychology and Director, Conflict Resolution Program, Department of Government at Georgetown University, who will speak on How Psychologists Failed.

The speaker shares, “We psychologists neglected the poor and minorities, favored the rich and privileged, and got science wrong and now this is what we have to do to get things right.”

Alison Wylie’s areas of specialization are philosophy of the social and historical sciences, feminist philosophy of science, history and philosophy of archaeology, and ethics issues in the social sciences. Most fundamentally she is curious about how inquiry succeeds under non-ideal conditions, and how we can best adjudicate the knowledge claims we rely on. Her research is case-based, and focused on questions about the nature of evidence, ideals of objectivity, the role of values in science, and issues of accountability in science. She also publishes on equity issues in philosophy and the sciences.

Admission is free.

Organized by the Department of Psychology and cosponsored by the Center for Social Science Scholarship.
