Choose one sociological issue relevant to systems/structures of oppression to conduct further research on (see list of possible topics below). You are to connect class content (ie. eText and additional materials provided in class) with additional research items you discover in your own exploration of your chosen topic. You CAN pick your own topic if it is approved by me first.The paper will be 4 pages, double-spaced not including title page, abstract, or reference page. This is a research paper and should be written as such – formally, with resources cited within the text and at the end of the paper (APA formatting). Make sure you answer in your OWN words – do not plagiarize.
