Jacy L. Young, PhD

I am a psychologist and historian. In my work I explore the methods and practices of the human sciences. I have written on a wide range of topics including questionnaires, intelligence testing, gender, child study, pedagogy, and evolutionary ideas in psychology. My work has appeared in the pages of Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences, History of Psychology, New Ideas in Psychology, and other outlets.

Dedicated to public engagement, I edit and blog regularly at Advances in the History of Psychology and am a core member of the Psychology’s Feminist Voices Oral History and Digital Archive Project directed by Alexandra Rutherford.
