Paper Assignment Public and Private Family in the News 

Description: This Paper assignment asks you to find a news article on a topic of family that interests you and to analyze it in sociological terms by thinking about the topic in terms of how sociologists might explain and study it. The objectives are to demonstrate your ability to articulate and exemplify the sociological perspective on family, both from the perspective of a specific theory of family, and also from the perspective of public and private family. 

Instructions: Find a news article published since 2000 that reports on or speaks about a family phenomenon, from anywhere in the world. Look to national papers or a radio story (e.g. New York Times, LA Times, Wall Street Journal, The Globe and Mail, The Guardian, NPR). Read or listen to the article, and using the sociological theories of family (from Cherlin’s), select one that could be used to explain, in a preliminary way, the phenomenon depicted in the selected news article. In your paper, demonstrate your understanding of what theories are, how they are used in sociology, and how the particular one you are selecting explains family, and then, how it explains the phenomenon in your article. Also demonstrate a good understanding of what public and private family means and how the family phenomenon in your article reflects these conceptions of family (or not, or partially). You are welcome (but not required) to think also about how the topic might be studied sociologically. 

Cite using APA citation style, with a parenthetical reference the author(s) or source you are using, like this: (Cherlin 2013). If you find a particularly well-stated quote from the source material, you must use quotation marks to indicate that, and a parenthetical citation with a page number, like this: (Cherlin 2013, p. 428). You must include a bibliography which will contain at minimum two sources, the article being analyzed and Cherlin’s textbook.
