The goal of this project is to encourage the critical analysis of a contemporary issue from the perspective of a social scientist. You will work in a group to explain, analyze, and address potential solutions to your chosen topic/book, drawing in part on the relevant book to inform your presentation. Each group will lead the class for 30 minutes on their topic and provide a written component as well.
