It’s All In Your Head: Phrenology, Crime and Australian Society
7 February 2016 @ 2.00 pm - 3.00 pm
Historian and author Alexandra Roginski discusses phrenology, the popular science that became one of the 19th century’s most enduring fads. She explores its central tenet: that character and intellect could be determined from a person’s head, and applied to fields including criminal reform, career guidance, and even child rearing.
