Training in Violence: An Essay in Military Hazing
Feb 28, 2018
Gresham College
How have the British and American armed forces been taught to fight and kill in conflicts from 1914 to the present? What role have psychology and technology played in military training? How do combatants contribute to, and endure, harsh military drills? Social and cultural life in the barracks will be explored, including 'rites of passage' in preparing soldiers for battle.

The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:
