After Milgram: Obedience and Identity

WARNING: The content of this programme may be hurtful or offensive to some viewers. Teachers are advised to view the programme and use their discretion to determine the suitability of the programme for their students. This programme - featuring extensive contributions from Professors Alex Haslam and Steve Reicher - looks at the origins of Stanley Milgram's ground-breaking research into the nightmare of the Holocaust and the subsequent trial of Adolph Eichmann. This is followed by an examination of the research itself - the participants, methodology and findings - with a focus on variations in obedience, the agentic state explanation and its critique. The programme then applies Haslam and Reicher's re-interpretation of Milgram's findings through the concept of social identity.
