In the paper you will exercise your sociological imagination to take a look at some of the sociological forces that are at work in shaping your unfolding biography and how they might affect the outcomes you will experience in your life. C. Wright Mills defined the sociological imagination as “the vivid awareness of the relationship between personal experience and the wider society”. Having a vivid sociological imagination means understanding that much of our life experience and biographical arc is shaped by sociological forces beyond our control. The time and place of our birth, our birth date JANUARY 20,1989 and birth year, age, gender, ethnicity, nationality, the type of family we are born into, social class, birth order, generation and generation size, cultural inheritances, family inheritances, and the timing of our life with much larger historical events and processes all help shape our experience in life, and whether we succeed or fail. While none of these factors alone will determine your destiny, they will interact with the personal choices you make in your life to create your unique life experience. Like a strong current in a river they will influence the ultimate direction your life takes you have the freedom to swim in any direction, but the tides of history are more powerful than any single individual. Understanding these forces is what sociology is all about.
In the paper you will discuss how your life has been shaped by these powerful outside forces. For example, what are the advantages and disadvantages of being born in your particular birth year? How has your particular generation been shaped by forces outside of your control? Are there any advantages to being an immigrant to the United States? What are the disadvantages? How has your life been shaped by being an African-American in early 21st century America? What are the advantages of being eighteen in today’s world? What are the disadvantages? What kind of family do you come from- are there any family inheritances? (the values, norms and beliefs we inherit from our family). Are you from a military family, an immigrant family, a musical family, a law enforcement family, an alcoholic family? What are the advantages of living in the United States in the early 21st century? What are the disadvantages? You can choose from the list above or you can come up with some variables of your own. Remember that sociology sees our experiences as more than personal. Whatever your experience, you share it with thousands or perhaps millions of other people.
You may need to do some research to complete the assignment. Find out what generation you are and read about its characteristics. Research your birth year. Was it a large birth year or a small birth year? Include your sources on the works cited page. You can focus the paper on one characteristic (i.e. race or gender), but you can also write about several categories. Make sure you clearly. outline what you intend to write about in the introduction to the paper. Try to have fun with the assignment. Building your sociological imagination will help you achieve your life’s goals. Like a swimmer who swims with the current, it can lead you to more effective choices, and make you a more aware and compassionate member of society. After all, it’s your life.For more information on law enforcement family check on this:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_enforcement
