Write six different journals. Don’t mix them together
You cannot do research, write only based on textbook
Entry 1
Based on today’s reading for today (chapter 7, pp 154-162 of the textbook). Remember to reference readings in your answers.
What does it mean to say that each of sex and sexuality is “socially constructed”? What are some “social issues” that appear to be “personal troubles” that arise due to the ways in which we understand sex and sexuality?
Entry 2
Based on your reading for today (pp 163 to the end of chapter 7). Remember to reference the readings in your answers.
How do the experiences shared by either Ivan Coyote or Rae Spoon (or both) show the consequences of not conforming to socially-constructed gender norms and gender relations? In what way can you “see the general in the particular” of their experiences? That is, in what way are these not simply “personal troubles” but reflective of “social issues”?
Entry 3
Based on your reading for today (chapter 10). Remember to reference the readings in your answers.
What are some problems associated with education? Why does it continue to be an important institution?
Entry 4
Based on your readings (chapter 8). Remember to reference the readings in your answers.
What does it mean to say that race is “not real in fact but real in effect”? In particular, what does it mean to say that “race” is a social construct? Does this mean that it’s wrong to see differences between humans or that we’re incorrect when we think we see biological differences between people? How is “race” related to power?
Entry 5.
In what ways can we see that seemingly personal troubles are in fact social issues? (Be sure to explain what the concepts of personal troubles and social issues are, how they differ from each other and why this difference matters.) Do you think it’s easier for Canadians to acknowledge racism in the USA than in the Canadian context and if so, why would this be?
Entry 6
Based on the readings for today (chapter 15).
How would you sociologically link issues around colonialism, race/racism, and one issue arising out of any one of the key themes addressed in the chapter (i.e. a social issue related to population or a social issue related to urbanization or a social issue related to environment)?
