Sociological Imagination Paper assignment

Objective: Practice thinking sociologically about your own life and the community around you. Background: Sociological imagination is a phrase that was coined by sociologist C. Wright Mills in the 1950s. Mills was interested in how an average American understood his or her everyday life. He found that people’s understandings of the world are limited by the social situations they find themselves in, particularly their family, friends, schools, and workplaces. It is hard to see the larger picture and how your life fits in. Sociological imagination is a quality of mind that can be developed with conscientious practice, and that helps you understand the larger meanings of experiences. In particular, it helps you connect private troubles or choices to public issues, and to understand the influence of culture, socialization, stratification on your life and lives of others. To use the sociological imagination, it is important to pay attention to the social and historical context in which we find ourselves. This does not mean that the social context determines what happens to us entirely. Rather, our choices and what we often think is purely psychological matters of personality are shaped by the society we live in, culture, and larger forces. Writing Assignment 1 Write a paragraph or two (300-400 words) in which you begin to apply the sociological imagination to your own life, or to the life of someone close to you. In doing so, connect to one or more concept, theory, or fact that we have covered in class so far. For example, you might write about how you were socialized within your family. Or you might write about the role of media representations on your life. Or you might write about being an employee in an organization.
