305MC – 29/10/10

I was absent for this lecture but received feedback from my research cluster as to what the next presentation would be.

From communication with my research cluster we are basing our presentation around The Stanford Prison Experiment and also the CCTV culture that has emerged.  For this i shall be researching into how CCTV has become as dominant as it has, from our high streets to our own homes-we are always being watched.

I shall post url links to articles that i have found and also my own views and points.

The Stanford Prison Experiment

News Items relating back to the 1971 psychology experiment:

This article is based around a reality TV show that is a recreation of the 1970’s Stanford Prison Experiment.  The modern twist that the shows producers have entailed within the show is that there would be CCTV cameras in place so that the carnage and danger of the original experiments would not be repeated. 

The official website for the experiment which has links to web articles and videos.

A very recent article which talks about the ‘Gaza Experiment’ and relates it back to the original Stanford Experiment.

Some unknown (?) facts about the experiment.

An article about the Abu Ghraib Prisoner Scandal which shocked the world with the photos of soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners. 

Another article about the Abu Ghraib Prisoner Scandal and the details regarding what caught the attention of the worlds media.  Features some of the photos which illustrate just how horrifying the torture and abuse was.

CCTV Culture

The question of how our privacy has been affected by the rise of CCTV.  Also talks about how film footage can help provide crucial clues to some of the most horrifying crimes, such as the Jamie Bulger abduction.

Talks about the ‘Surveillance Society’ with which we are living in today and how the lack of freedom of privacy is being affected.

How the rise of CCTV within schools is helping to reduce false allegations made against teachers as well as monitoring troublesome pupils.

An investigative article into how no-one seems to mind the rise of CCTV, with the UK being the highest in surveillance camera rates.

A very shocking article about how two women were sexually assaulted in a notorious public underpass and 13 out of the 18 cameras were switched off.
