De Anza College History Discussion
1. Sociological problems
Kim Price-Glynn used participant observation to study the interactions at a strip club. Throughout her research, she needed to navigate a fine line between working there as an employee and being subjected to the same kind of sexism that female cocktail waitresses encountered at the strip club, and responding in ways that felt true to herself as a researcher and as a person.
- Give a specific example of a choice that Price-Glynn made in the course of her research that you feel helped her protect herself or her values.
- Do you think this choice compromised (damaged) her research? Why or why not?
2. History Question
After Reading Lecure 2, Cite only one quote from Douglass or Jung but not both. Write an open-ended question you have after listening to the lecture and reading both texts.
The assignment is rather short and should look something like this:
“Quote” (Author name, page number).
Reflection paragraph on why you selected the quote above.
