Dr. Cathy Faye, Historian, Assistant Director, The Cummings Centre for the History of Psychology

What would a Canadian from Wishart, Saskatchewan be doing in Akron, Ohio?  Well for Dr. Cathy Faye, the answer is helping to run The Cummings Centre for the History of Psychology.  The Cummings Centre is the largest repository in the world aimed at preserving the history of psychology. A lot of Dr. Faye’s most recent work involved designing exhibits for the now re-opened National Museum of Psychology.  Something she found challenging was writing, as an historian, exhibits designed for the general public.

 

 Dr. Faye is also the co-creator of I am Psyched, an exhibit designed for girls, that focuses on the much-underrepresented contributions made by women of colour to psychology

On this episode guest host Jodi Kearns finds out how a University of Regina grad from rural Saskatchewan ended up as the assistant director of a major U.S. centre for preserving the history of psychology.
