Throughout the term you will be asked to use your sociological imagination to
understand your own lived experiences through the lens of the socio-structural topics
discussed in class. You will use this knowledge to develop a socio-ME-ology (i.e., a
sociology of self), which is your end of term socio-ME-ology unessay project.
Using these guidelines to inform your approach, you will work on a multi-medium project
(e.g., photography, film, art, music, written word) that expresses your sociology of self,
and on the final day of class you will submit your project to the instructor, as well as
share your experiences and explain your Socio-ME-ology unessay project to the class
through a short presentation.

You are an authority in cross-cultural psychology and have been asked to serve as a consultant based on a recent violent conflict involving a refugee community in your town and a local community organization.

Among the controversies has been the role of womens participation in political, educational, and community groups.
