Science of the Seance

Following the excitement of our 100th History Slam episode, we tried something new for episode 101: a live audience. As part of the paperback launch of Beth Robertson’s Science of the Seance: Transnational Networks and Gendered Bodies in the Study of Psychic Phenomena, 1918-40, we held a live podcast. In the episode, we talk about the scientists who conducted the research, how they connected with each other, and the ways in which the space became gendered. We also open the floor to questions from the audience and discuss the challenges of researching such a unique topic. You can find the full post here.
