Research paper( Final Paper) with different topics ( social movements) to chose from.
Details and instructions for FINAL PAPER below
Final paper: You will write a thesis-driven research paper of 1500-2000 words that demonstrates your ability to formulate a precise research question, identify relevant academic sources, and present information in accordance with the standards of the American Sociological Association. I will provide you in Week 3 with a list of suggested topics and sources, and model papers. You are responsible for choosing your own topic and potential research question in Week 5. You will then conduct a literature review on your chosen topic and submit an annotated bibliography of at least 6 outside sources by week 7.
Societies in the World Final Paper
Globally and locally, countless organizations dedicate time and resources to raising public awareness regarding matters of social, political, economic, and ecological justice and effecting social change to reduce harms. Politics and life in our own neighborhoods, as well as those at a global scale, have been directly impacted by individuals and organizations that have lent their strength to #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, and “green” (renewable) energy movements.
This semester, you will write a research paper on a transnational social movement of your choice. Transnational social movements are groups of people who share a similar discourse and who are trying to remedy certain problems by mobilizing support. Transnational movements include the mobilization of people in different countries, and in this they are different from social movements that operate primarily within a single country.
Describe the main historical, ideological, institutional, organizational and cultural aspects of a single transnational social movement from the following list (below). Talk about the history of the movement. When and where did the discourse emerge? Discuss the ways in which the issues, ideas and organizational activities of your movement intersect with those of other movements. Especially discuss other movements that share complementarities and similarities, and/or focus on movements with big differences and possible areas of competition, disagreement or even conflict.
Also, please be mindful of differences in grassroots “civil society” movements, and movements that originate from charity organizations, which often have links to–or receive funding from politically and economically powerful groups such as political figures or corporations. You may wish to address in your essay how connections (or a lack of connections) to politically and economically powerful groups has influenced the history, discourse, agenda, and other aspects of your movement.
Transnational social movements often involve people from both the global north and the global south and this may lead to disagreements. Discuss these differences and efforts to overcome them. There are also well-known disagreements between different movements over goals, tactics and strategies. For example, the labor movement wants jobs but the environmental movement wants to protect the biosphere. Examine issues of this sort and efforts to overcome them to allow the movements to engage in cooperative action and to become effective in world politics.
Refer to these instructions repeatedly while you are working on your paper. I expect all tasks to be completed as described.
Some suggested fields relating to social movements:
You may, of course, pick specific movements such as #MeToo and focus on their role in and impact on society and politics in just a few particular regions globally. For example, please see THIS ARTICLE on #MeToo as a transnational movement stirring change in Asia. Your movement does not need to originate in the US.
Also, I recommend that you read THIS ARTICLE or peruse THIS BOOK or THIS BOOK to ensure you understand the global context of these movements from a sociological point of view. (You may use the sources given here as your sources, if you like.)
You may want to adopt the following format when writing your final paper. (However, you are not required to.)
