WEEK 5 QUESTIONS
1) Thinking back to the concepts of cultural opportunities and political opportunities (lecture 6), think of a time when a shift in popular ideas or a shift in power helped make it possible for a troubling condition to be addressed. Provide an overview of the troubling condition, cultural or political opportunity, and the shift after the cultural or political opportunity. Examples can be historical or from current events, from local or international contexts.
2) Design your own audit study to measure labor market issues (see studies in lecture 7). What population(s) would be the focus of your study? What type of labor market sector? What type of instrument (e.g. resumes, matched pairs of people, etc)? What research question would you ask? How would your study be a useful expansion on the studies reviewed in lecture 7?
