Occasionally I get interview requests given my areas of expertise. In the spring of 2011, I spoke with Oakland Ross about the psychology of those who commit genocide - drawing upon my research on and understanding of authoritarianism and destructive obedience. Today, I was interviewed by a journalist interested in my expertise on media violence and the weapons effect. Once that article is available, I shall share the link.
In general, interviews give behavioral and social scientists an opportunity to share our work with those outside of the academic world - outside of our labs and outside of our classrooms.
