Kathryn Paige Harden at International Society for Intelligence Research conferences

I've found that Kathryn Paige Harden has participated in at least two ISIR conferences.

At the 2009 conference she delivered a paper "Why Don’t Smart Kids Have Sex? A Twin-Control Study." Also at that year's conference were Michael Woodley and Charles Murray. Harden claims she's not an hereditarian but by any standard, she absolutely is.

2009 was the year that Woodley published "Is Homo sapiens polytypic? Human taxonomic diversity and its implications" which was included in the manifesto of the monster who committed mass murder in Buffalo in 2022. 

The mass-murdering freak found other people inspiring, several of whom, like Woodley, have appeared at ISIR conferences. More about that soon.

In 2018 Harden delivered the keynote “The Genetic Lottery: Genes, Education, and Egalitarianism." Also at that conference were Woodley, again, and Emil Kirkegaard and Emily Willoughby and the usual mob of race pseudoscience true believers.

Harden can be heard promoting Emily Willoughby in this podcast in 2021:

Paige: It obviously doesn't stop at the neck and most people already know that. I talk about this study in the book where Emily Willoughby, who is a psychologist at the University of Minnesota, She and her colleagues asked a sample of lay Americans, not academics, to estimate the genetic influence on diseases like diabetes or breast cancer, mental illnesses like schizophrenia, but also psychological traits like intelligence or personality.

Richard Haier can be seen using a Harden article to defend Charles Murray and Sam Harris against Ezra Klein. More about Richard Haier soon. Talk about true believers in pure race science. Haier literally believes that the cause of poverty is bad genes, a position I like to call the "hereditarian equation."
