Psychology in Film Series: The Stanford Prison Experiment
Start Date: 3/23/2018Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 3/23/2018End Time: 12:30 PM

Event Description:
The Stanford Prison Experiment by Dr. Phillip Zimbardo is one of the most famous and most unethical studies done in social psychology. In 1971, 24 student volunteers were randomly assigned to the roles of prisoner or guard in a simulated jail in the basement to see the effects of imprisonment. However, in just a few days, the study deteriorated as students got lost in their new roles. Guards became abusive, prisoners became passive. The film is based on those actual events and will be used as a springboard for discussion about the often overlooked power of social roles and how its impact applies outside of a prison setting, including our classrooms, workplaces, and community.
