Sociology 2nd assignment

As you watch the video for Quiet Rage, Stanley Milgram’s Obedience studies, and the clips on Solomon Asch’s conformity experiment, think about the following and answer these questions in at least three pages (double-spaced, standard margins, size 12 Times New Roman font) by Sunday at 11:59 PM. You can attach your paper as a .doc, docx, .rtf, .pdf or if you do not know how to do this please copy and paste your paper into an email and send to me through email at Please know that each of these questions should require at least a full paragraph response (3-5 sentences) and that you are expected to bring in details and specific references to the videos and our textbook. Please be sure to list and number each question and make sure to answer all parts of the question and also cite or reference any paraphrase, ideas, or direct quotes. 1.) If you were the experimenter in charge, would you have done this study? Would you have terminated it earlier? Would you have conducted a follow-up study? Why or why not? How would you have changed any of these experiments? Or would you have not changed anything? 2.) If you were a guard, what type of guard would you have become? How sure are you? 3.) If you were a prisoner, would you have been able to endure the experience? What would you have done differently than the actual subjects did? For instance, if you were imprisoned in a real prison for five years or more, could you take it? 4.)What prevented “good guards” from objecting to or overriding the orders from tough or bad guards? Draw from your textbook and the information about group conformity and the work of Solomon Asch and Irving Janis. 5.) What is identity? Is there a core to your self–independent from how others define you? How difficult would it be to remake any given person into someone with a new identity? Ethics are a fundamental concern of sociologists when they are conducting research. 6.) Where do we draw the line between ethical and unethical research? 7.) Was it ethical to do these experiments? If yes, which ones and why? If no, why not?  8.) Would it be better if these studies had never been done? Was it right to trade the suffering experienced by participants for the knowledge gained by the research? 9.) How do the ethical dilemmas in Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment research compare with the ethical issues raised by Stanley Milgram’s obedience experiments?  10.) How can sociological research help us to better understand the world around us?
