HAPI Hour Seminar: Honor, Shame and Exile: The Moral Geography of Whistleblowing in Research on Human Subjects

 

When human research subjects are mistreated or abused, it is rare for anyone to blow the whistle. Most bystanders remain silent in the face of wrongdoing. The rare whistleblowers who do speak out present a moral puzzle that needs explanation.  I will argue that understanding the act of whistleblowing means understanding the language of shame and honor that sociologists have declared obsolete, but whose force many of us still feel.
