 Revisiting the Stanford Prison Experiment

During 2018, there were several critiques of the Stanford Prison Experiment (SPE) based on material in the SPE archive at Stanford University. In response, I have written an evaluation of these critiques in Psychology Review which might be of interest to colleagues who teach and research within social psychology. The article can be viewed at the web link below, and is subject to the restrictions stated there on its use.
