I am an invited speaker at the 2017 Vancouver International Conference on the Teaching of Psychology (VICTOP). My talk, entitled "Magic In Mind: Viewing Psychology Through the Lens of Performance Magic," will provide an introduction to the modern science of magic movement while supplying educators with some simple techniques for using magic in the classroom. Added bonus: Elizabeth Loftus will be a keynote speaker at the conference! http://www.kpu.ca/victop/keynotes

I made an appearance down under on Nicholas J. Johnson's "Scamapalooza" podcast. Nick and I talked about all sorts of things including the relationship between magic and autism. It was both fun and strange. You can download the podcast at https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-scamapalooza-31130210/episode/36-brain-magic-with-tony-41732954/.
I was interviewed about magic, cognitive science, and whatever came up organically on the "A Life Well Designed" podcast, with Jonathan Pritchard. Have a listen!
The annual meeting of the Vision Sciences Society, in St. Pete Beach, Florida, was chock full o' magic. My contributions included a poster presentation on our work exploring attention and microsaccades (handout here) and a Demo Night presentation on our inattentional blindness paradigm (handout here).
I presented some of my newest magic research exploring microsaccades as measures of divided attention at the annual meeting of the Psychonomic Society. The handout for my presentation can be downloaded here.
I was interviewed for "The Magic Word," a podcast for magicians and magic aficionados. While I do use some magic lingo, it should be an accessible primer to my research. You can listen to the podcast by directing your browser to http://themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/260-tony-barnhart.
I am Associate Professor and Chair of Psychological Science at Carthage College, in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
