This Twitter Feed is intended to help students in selecting a Final Project topic (but is not intended to limit ideas).
Social Justice Comparison Final Project: For this project, you are asked to examine a social justice issue within the local host culture in comparison to your home culture(s) (as defined by you). Each student will contribute one chapter to an e-book which will be made freely available online, through the Oregon State University Library. Pick any issue that interests you and is relevant both in the local context and in your home culture. Topics should be relatively specific rather than sweepingly general. Examples might include: undocumented immigration; access to education; multilingualism and language justice; LGBTQ rights; race and racism in criminal justice; workers rights (maternity/paternity leave, vacation time). Please discuss the similarities and differences between your home and host cultures with regards to your topic of choice. Your chapter must include some written text, but may also include pictures. You should aim to integrate personal experience, concepts learned in class, and research.
