Summer 2020 – Morton College.
June 11, 2020.
Good Morning SOC 100-21,
This announcement includes embedded links to: Paper Assignment 1 Guidelines; Presentation Guidelines; and Paper/Presentation Topic Suggestions; that were displayed and discussed in class last evening.
Slides from this week’s lectures have also been posted to the Blackboard and external course website.
1) June 9.
2) June 11.
Additionally I will be in Collaborate from 11am to 12pm today (Friday, June 12) for a “Virtual Office Session,” but this is completely optional, and I will be there to answer any questions about the assignments distributed last evening.
If you don’t have your book yet, and need Chapter 1, let me know, and I will send .pdfs of the scanned Chapter 1.
Have a great weekend, and “see” you next Tuesday for virtual lecture.
p.s. One final point, last night I mentioned that protesters and their allies had seized a momentarily abandoned police station in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington.
Below is a Seattle Times article about this “autonomous zone.” This may become an interesting case study to follow throughout the summer session to see what happens to this zone as a way to trace the interaction between social movements and “the State” (especially US internal security apparatus – police, intelligence, and military).

Note: This is not an assigned reading, it just might be of interest to some, or all, of you.
