Description

Three months after the start of the Eichmann Trial in Jerusalem in 1961, Stanley Milgram, a young associate professor in social psychology at Yale began a series of experiments to explain why people follow orders. His “Obedience” experiments remain controversial today.  Following a screening of Milgram’s own documentary film, Dr. Tritter will discuss the experiments, Milgram’s results, and how scholars understand Milgram’s work today.
