In this term paper, you will explore a topic of your choice that is directly related to the intersection between race and inequality. This does not necessarily suggest that there must be some causal relationship between REN and inequality (i.e. the former causes the latter), yet there should be some interactional relationship (i.e. inequality is augmented by race; an understanding of race may reduce inequality; etc.). Your challenge will be to argue for how such relationships materialize, as well as the sociological implications generated by it. There are no explicit strategies for writing this term paper, however I would like you to consider some of the following that will help you to conceptualize my expectations of your output:Definitive StrategiesAs the name suggests, definitive strategies refer to thoroughly defining a given topic or distinguishing among the many different definitions of the topic under exploration. Definitive strategies are typically objective and allow for little or no analysis; instead the merits of the definitive strategy rest almost entirely upon how well the author surveys the different perspectives on a given definition. Interpretive StrategiesInterpretive strategies are relatively common in sociology. In general, they focus on a case study that can be interpreted through analysis. Basically, interpretive strategies use an analytical perspective to guide an exploration of a topic (case study) and then substantiate an interpretation of that topic by providing some evidence relevant to sociology.
Juxtaposition StrategiesJuxtaposition strategies typically explore a topic by comparing and contrasting two sides of an argument. In this strategy, it is not enough to simply state the two arguments, but also demonstrate the merits or demerits of both sides. Position StrategyUnlike the others listed above, position strategies are characterized by argument, which means that the author needs to state a position in favor of or against another argument. Although it is important to be balanced in explaining the different positions early in the paper, position strategies will often emphasize the authors subjective argument throughout. Any Other StrategyAs I know writing is an ongoing process and takes time, trial and error, Im open to any other form of writing that you see fit in generating your submission
