Breaching Experiment

Breaching Experiment. due: beginning of class Purpose: This assignment attempts to spur you to think critically about norms, deviance, and stigma by asking you to violate a norm in public. Why do people conform? What happens when they do not? Instructions: Break one norm in front of at least two different groups of family, friends, and strangers. If you have to violate the norm more than once, make sure that you keep all violations within a three day window to minimize recall problems. Do not engage in any act which is immoral or illegal. Clichéd examples: ordering dessert first at a restaurant, treating casual acquaintances like intimates (or vica versa), wearing inappropriate clothing, initiating conversations with strangers, sitting next to strangers on the bus when there are other seats available. For best results, please: Make sure to clear innovative ideas with me before executing them. Discuss your reactions and bystanders’ attempts at social control. Write clearly. Provide proper citations if necessary. Adhere to the two-page maximum. I will not grade anything appearing on the third page and beyond. Double-space. Single-spaced papers will not be accepted. Follow all regular writing guidelines. I will deduct 5% for failing to adhere to the guidelines. You must bring a hard-copy of this paper with you by the beginning of class on the day that it is due. All NSC and class policies apply. Grading Criteria: Key Terms: Make sure to use class materials to define the following terms. Failure to use class materials could result in a total loss of credit for this section (in other words, use your book and the lecture slides, not the internet). (1) norms (4 points) (2) social control (3 points) (3) informal and internal social control (2 points each) and (4) stigma (4 points) Before you violate a norm, describe the experiment: Describe your experiment. What will you do? When will you do it? (3 points) Explain why your experiment is a violation of a norm. (5 points) Hypothesis: What do you expect bystanders to do when they observe your norm violation? Remember to phrase this in the language of our class by relating two observable variables together. Your independent variable is violating the norm/not violating the norm. (5 points) Correctly identify your independent and dependent variables (2 points) The norm violation: Violate the same norm in front of at least two different groups of people. For example, two groups could be friends and strangers. Using two different groups of strangers is not acceptable, as their reactions could be substantively similar. (5 points) The Report: (Choose either 4.1 or 4.2 below, not both. You must complete 4.3 and 4.4) (if people reacted to your violation) Compare and contrast the reactions of these different groups using key terms. Why might these reactions differ? Why might they be the same? (5 points) (if people did not react to your violation) If your violation did not solicit attempts from bystanders to socially control you, consider (1) why some norm violations may be met with stronger reactions than others and (2) whether there was something that you could do that would maintain the character of your norm violation, but increase the severity of bystanders’ reactions. (5 points) Describe how you felt as a result of the norm violation. Do you normally exercise internal social control to keep yourself from violating your norm? Did you feel stigma? Will you violate this norm again in the future? (5 points) Discuss a norm that you think is bad. Consider why people may follow this norm. How does this assignment help you to understand people from other social structures? (5 points) Extra Credit: Did you violate a norm that could make the world a better place? Explain how your norm violation improves the world. YOU MUST TALK WITH GEOFF IN ADVANCE TO RECEIVE CONSIDERATION FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY (2 points) Have a friend take a photo or video of your norm violation in action, email to Geoff and be prepared for the whole class to see what you did (1 point for photo, 2 points for video).
