You’re going to pick an interesting social problem or issue. It can be anything, like an issue from the news, an issue that’s affected you personally, or an issue that you think is really important.
Once you pick the issue, you’re going to write about this issue using a sociological theorist from class. Some questions you could answer in the paper:
– How would your theorist explain why the problem or situation happened?
– What would your theorist think should be done about the problem?
– How would your theorist explain the problem in ways that might not be the same as the general public?
-How would your theorist explain the problem in ways different from other theorists?
Theorists: Marx, Weber, Durkheim, Du Bois, Gilman, Fanon, De Beauvoir, Foucault
