TELOS - When Psychology Goes Awry

Both before and after the 1947 Nuremburg Code was issued, psychological experiments wreaked havoc. Dangerous psychological experiments were conducted everywhere, but the research that laid the final boundaries and ethical foundations for research on psychological human subjects took place here in the U.S. In this class, we examine the most notorious of these studies, from Watson’s 1920s fear experiments on “Little Albert” to Harlow’s 1960s maternal deprivation experiments on rhesus monkeys, to the 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment, and beyond. Candice Bradley is a quantitative anthropologist with numerous publications in research methods.
