1. Select a newspaper article that discusses a current event in your community or somewhere else in the world and briefly address the following questions:
a.) How might the Sociological Imagination (C. Wright Mills) help you to understand this event in a more meaningful way?
b.) Select ONE major theorist/theory (Karl Marx and Social Conflict Theory OR Emile Durkheim and Structural Functionalism OR Max Weber and Symbolic Interactionism) – and suggest how they would explain this event. We are asking you to apply the theoretical framework of your chosen theorist to your newspaper article; suggest how they would explain/interpret/analyze this event as the basis of your analysis in the short paper.
*TIP*: Think of each of these separate theories as a microscope lens through which you are viewing your chosen topic (newspaper article); each theory would reveal something slightly different when applied to the same topic. First, be sure you understand your chosen theorist/theoretical perspective. Second, use your chosen theorist/theoretical perspective as your framework to analyze your newspaper article, being mindful of the specific elements of your newspaper article that your chosen theorist/theory would pick up on.
