Investigating the Supernatural: Scientific Quests to Colonize Hysterical Women and Psychic Mediums, with Asti Hustvedt, Ph.D., author of Medical Muses

During the late-nineteenth century and early-twentieth century, the female bodies of hysterics and mediums were understood as being untethered from the laws of physiology, capable of extraordinary physical and mental feats. Author Asti Hustvedt, an independent scholar who has written extensively on hysteria and literature, discusses some of the ways in which male scientists attempted to investigate these bewildering female bodies.
