Turner and Killian (1957) Collective Behaviour – development

 of the ‘emergent norm’ perspective – that collective behaviour

 is a product of new norms that emerge from novel situations –

  behaviour, or in a university dormitory

individuals have their own reasons for involvement – but

 the group is the catalyst for the new emergent norms
