1. DOING Sociology: The Experience of Being
‘Not from Here’.
In this paper you will use WEB Dubois’ Double
Consciousness, or Dorothy Smith’s Bifurcated Consciousness, and
Stuart Hall’s insights as the basis for your essay in which you will
conduct an interview between you and a relative or someone you know well, about
their experience “living in two cultures”.
· What is their
immigrant story?
· What is their
“lived experience” (Stuart Hall has a lot to say on this): regarding the
attitudes and discrimination experienced in their adopted home?
finally, how do they manage to negotiate race and racism, gender and sexism,
and identity in Canada while maintaining their sense of self hood.
