Socialization/Self-Reflection Paper (due by Thursday, April 12th at 11 pm).
You will write a 2-page reflection about yourself. The goal of this paper is to reflect on your own socialization. A good place to start is by reading Sensoy & DiAngelo’s (2017) chapter on “Socialization,” (attached in files) and reflecting on your own socialization, particularly thinking about Discussion Question #4 at the end of the chapter:
Many sociologists say that in part how we come to know ourselves is by knowing who we are not. Sociologist Charles Cooley described this process as the “looking glass self” to capture the idea that it is what others reflect back to us that teaches us who we are—that is, our ideas about ourselves are based on how we see ourselves (people like us) in relation to others (people not likeus). What kind of people did you learn were different from you? In which ways were they different? How were you taught about this difference? If you were told that everyone was the same, did the implicit messages of your environment match this explicit message? For example, what key groups (such as the elderly, people with disabilities, people of different social classes than your own, people from different religious groups, people from different racial groups) were you segregated from? As you reflect on this question, consider implicit (unspoken) messages as well as explicit (direct) messages (p. 85).
