Rumor has it that The Psychological Record will publish a special section devoted to the 100th anniversary of Kantor's 1917 dissertation, the University of Chicago. See "Presentations and Resources on Kantor and Interbehaviorism" on this website to read that dissertation.
Something called "Behavioral Science in the 21st Century" favorably discusses Kantor. Looks like an interesting website. According to the website itself:
"The mission of bSci21Media is to serve as a comprehensive media outlet for behavior analysis by disseminating the science to the world and supporting behavior analytic companies around the globe. Our larger vision is B.F. Skinner’s vision of a technology of behavior change to provide solutions to the world’s problems."
At the risk of being self-serving--a new publication on the naturalism of William Stephenson is available and will be published in an upcoming issue of The Psychological Record.
Midgley, B. D., & Delprato, D. J. (in press). Stephenson's subjectivity as naturalistic and understood from a scientific perspective. The Psychological Record.
The following reference came across the Q Methodology Network:
Munoz-Blanco, M. I., & Padilla Vargas, M. A. (2017). Utilizing Q-methodology for the study of the behavior of the audience of creativity. International Journal of Psychological Studies, 9(2), 67-81.
The abstract contains these intriguing statements:
"The present study presents a way to study Creativity from an interbehavioral standpoint by utilizing Q Methodology to capture the interaction between the Audience and the object," and "The present results show promise of the use of the Q Methodology in the research of the behavior of the Audience from a naturalistic perspective."
Noel W. Smith (Emeritus--SUNY at Plattsburgh, USA) has published a new book that is surely informed by interbehavioral psychology: The Myth of Mind: A Challenge to Mainstream Psychology and Its Imposed Constructs. You can read about the book and order a copy here.
Over his career, Smith has published with Kantor, founded and edited The Interbehaviorist, and written extensively on interbehaviorism. See "Recent Publications" and "A Selected Bibliography" on this website for some of Smith's contributions.
On the Interbehavioral Psychology Discussion Forum, Dennis Delprato posted the following today:
"The attached title page (also with Contents page) [from Kantor's dissertation] serves as a reminder that in 2017 it will have been 100 years since J. R. Kantor fulfilled requirements for the doctorate at Univ. of Chicago. Might call for some sort of celebratory activity?
Just thought of this after looking over the dissertation and pondering just what Kantor seeded overall: There is a certain similarity between Kantor and Elma Turl's father. Those interested but with no idea of what I am referring to can look up the lyrics to the song of the same name (Elma Turl)."

This photo was taken last year in front of the psychology building at Indiana University (Bloomington, IN, USA). Apparently, things have changed since the days of Kantor and Skinner (see Fuller, 1973; Hearst & Capshew, 1988).

This commentary, "Teach Students the Biology of Their Time," recently came to my attention thanks to Dr. Chris Green and the Society for the History of Psychology newsgroup. The anti "'genes for' approach" certainly connects with Kantor's field perspective and the developmental systems approach of scholars such as Zing-yang Kuo, Gilbert Gottlieb, Robert Lickliter, and Susan Oyama, to name only a few. On Kantor, in particular, see Delprato (2006) and Kantor (1947).
