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.
1) Paper Assignment 1 Guidelines.
3) Paper/Presentation Topic Suggestions.
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.
