The Black Hills Research Symposium is an interdisciplinary conference to showcase undergraduate research activity in the Black Hills region.
The keynote address will be delivered Thursday, March 21 at 2 p.m. by Dr. Gary L. Wells, Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Iowa State University. Gary L. Wells’ research-based proposals on eyewitness memory and lineup procedures are being increasingly accepted in law enforcement practices across the U.S. His conclusions about eyewitness identification have received national media attention in such places as Time magazine, CBS’s 48 Hours, the NBC World News Tonight, NBC’s Today Show, and 60 Minutes. Wells has worked with prosecutors and police across the U.S. to reform eyewitness identification procedures.
