How social problems are defined and managed varies by space and time across cult
How social problems are defined and managed varies by space and time across culture. To acquire full awareness of the complexities associated with contemporary issues, one must investigate the historical, cultural, political, and legal structural contexts of that particular social problem and social order over time. Using examples from the readings and other course materials, evaluate a social problem of your choice through the development of a narrative timeline and examination of how that particular issue of interest has evolved in relation to the changing sociocultural structures over the years, either from a short-term (last 5-10 years) or long-term perspective (decades/generational). The paper must be framed using either the three main sociological perspectives (Functionalist, Conflict, Interactionist) or Malcolm Spector’s and John Kitsuse’s four stages of a social problem throughout your analysis. The length is not defined but it is not a full fledged research type paper. It is more a shorter writing that the professor stated in her email this morning. No works cited page is needed. In the downloaded file titled "Final Study Guide" there is a section called "The Color of Drug Abuse" (in red). That lends itself to the topic.
