you can choose one of the options
You have two options for the final paper, and each are worth 100 points. Option 1 would be to compose an ethnographic, qualitative, phenomenological, sociological analysis of your own â€œselfâ€ concept, including the factors which have influenced it (your upbringing, experiences, interactions, memes, socializations, conflicts, successes and failures). Option 2 would be to select a social problem of your choice (homelessness, poverty, racial profiling, etc.), and to design a detailed intervention to address it; this could be a non-profit organization, a volunteer program, anything you can imagine! Both options will draw heavily from course readings (course concepts and theoretical tools), lectures, and discussions and have no predetermined (prefabricated) structure. Iâ€™d advise NOT simply summarizing the full content of the course in this paper. This paper should be roughly 4 times as long as the weekly response papers, as it is worth 100 points.
