Wahbie Long, Ph.D., is a senior lecturer and clinical psychologist in the Department of Psychology at the University of Cape Town, with a Y1 rating from the National Research Foundation in South Africa. He is a Mandela Mellon Fellow of the Hutchins Center at Harvard University, and a member of the APA Task Force on Indigenous Psychology. His research interests include history, theory and indigenization of psychology. He has published in journals including History of Psychology, History of the Human Sciences, Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences, and New Ideas in Psychology. Wahbie's forthcoming book, A history of ‘relevance’ in psychology – to be published by Palgrave Macmillan – traces the emergence of questions about ‘relevance’ in the discipline since the 1960s, with a special focus on psychology in South Africa. He is a specialist in discourse analysis and is particularly interested in the growing phenomenon of co-option in psychology. His current work also focuses on the growing field of African psychology, in which he attempts to replace cultural questions with an analysis of the interpersonal, institutional and structural violence that pervades life in South Africa.
