Chaplain’s Conversations

Description
Discover more about the people of the University of St Andrews in the penultimate in a series of conversations with the Chaplain, Revd Dr Donald MacEwan. Tonight Professor Steve Reicher, Wardlaw Professor in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience, will discuss his path to the University, his thoughts on the future of education and what inspires his research. Professor Reicher researches the issues of group behaviour and the individual-social relationship, specifically a model of crowd action that accounts for both social determination and social change; the construction of social categories through language and action; and political rhetoric and mass mobilisation, especially around the issue of national identity. This Conversation will follow the showing of Shock Room, a film by Kathryn Millard with whom Professor Reicher worked, about controversial Milgram experiments on obedience.
