Bio/Research

Mark Solovey is a professor at the University of Toronto, in the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, where he teaches and does research in the history of the social sciences and psychology. Currently, he is completing a book manuscript, titled "Follow the Money: The Rise, Decline and Fragmentation of the Social Sciences in Cold War America." He and his wife Marga Vicedo (also a Harvardwood member) write screenplays together and are addicted to watching movies. A long, long time ago, Mark grew up in Hastings-On-Hudson, in Westchester County, not far from New York City. He did his undergraduate studies at Rollins College, his graduate studies at the University of Wisconsin, and then worked at Arizona State University. Not so long ago, he was a visiting scholar at Harvard University, in the History of Science and the History Departments. A passionate amateur tennis player, Mark wonders why there are so few movies (and even fewer good movies) about tennis players. Hoping to fill this startling lacunae, he and Marga have written a screenplay about the first world champion black tennis player, Althea Gibson. Not many movies that feature a black actress as the lead get made either.
