Lisa Curtis-Wendlandt is an Honorary Fellow at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia. A former feminist historian and philosopher, she has published on diverse topics such as ancient Greek philosophy, Enlightenment women's political thought, and colonial mission history. In her current role, she explores the intersections between the humanities and biomedical sciences in contemporary scholarship on Tourette Syndrome, a childhood-onset neurodevelopmental condition with an intriguingly elusive aetiology. She is currently writing a book that will show how the central controversies in Tourette's research pertain to "big topics" in philosophy such as time, volition, and the self.
