I am conducting this research for my Advanced Topics Gender and Sexuality Class.

I am conducting this research for my Advanced Topics Gender and Sexuality Class. My research focuses on Female Genital Cutting (FGC), an act more than 200 million women and girls go through worldwide according to recent UN data. My work looks at how the act of FGC is still prevalent despite it being considered a form of gender violence and is banned by international organizations like the United Nations and the African Union.
My main research question is why is FGC still prevalent despite the act being banned by the United Nations and African Union. My hope is to learn the mechanisms behind the prevalence of FGC. This study will be a qualitative study with a focus on interviews. I will be interviewing four women who went through FGC and two Imams in person and via Zoom. Interviewees will be recruited through personal and interpersonal connections; as a native of Senegambia, I know some women who went through FGC and are willing to talk about it. This will be my starting point for research participants, who will then refer me to others.
1. I want this paper to take a sociological perspective, I don’t want it to be judgemental eg this is bad, barbaric, or illegal rather I want to look at it through the lens of the people who really continue the act, what are their beliefs, and why do they do it, etc. no judgment just understanding
2. I am sending you a file with the summary of the interviews I conducted on 6 subjects. I will also send you the structure of how the paper should be written. finally, I am sending you a literature review I have 7 literature reviews you can add 3 outside one. it is important that you used the literature review I sent.

This assignment is an example of “visual sociology” – a field in which photography and other visual media can be used to engage sociological questions and illustrate social dynamics. If you choose to engage this assignment, take photos in one or more urban settings (your site can be Northridge, or somewhere else like Los Angeles). You must take the photos yourself – pulling photos off of the internet or getting them from any other source is not allowed for this assignment. Your photo essay must include at least one photo in response to each of the following five prompts or questions. If you like, you can include more than one photo per prompt, but to receive full credit, all five prompts must include a distinct photo. Your photos should be compiled into one document, and then uploaded in PDF form. We will review formatting options in class. You should include accompanying text or captions to help explain each photo or set of photos. The length of written comments is up to you, though generally at least a few sentences is helpful, and you can write as much as you like. The five questions/prompts are:
1. How do urban spaces reflect social divisions? That is how are communities separated or kept apart?
2. How is the presence of trauma visible or obvious in urban communities?
3. Take a photo that illustrates the impact and proliferation of technology in the urban environment
4. Take a photo that illustrates an example of a challenge facing urban youth
5. Take a photo that illustrates one or more of the expressions of urban racism

Locate an empirical article on a topic of interest to you that utilizes a qualitative content analysis. After you read the article, consider the following:
How did the authors come up with the categories for the coding frame? Did these seem reasonable?
How did the authors address issues of reliability?
How well did the final report summarize the original data? Was anything lost in the process? Explain.
For this assignment, you are going to practice conducing a simple qualitative analysis. Specifically, you will conduct a qualitative content analysis (QCA) in which you will assign codes to qualitative data and summarize your findings. You will be provided with authentic data from a study involving motivation for religious sacrifice. In this study, participants were asked to respond to the open-ended prompt, “Please describe a time when you gave something up for religious reasons.” Twenty responses were selected from the larger study for this assignment and have been provided to you in the attached file (Qualitative Analysis Project.docx). The purpose of this analysis is to determine the types of religious sacrifices most frequently reported by religious individuals.
To the right of the responses, you will find a coding frame with five different categories (i.e., types of sacrifice): immoral entertainment, food, drugs/alcohol, sexual behavior, and money. Each category has been color-coded for you. Read through each of the responses and determine whether any part of the text belongs to one of the categories from the coding frame. For example, if the text were to state, “I gave up eating chocolate during lent,” it would be coded as a “food” sacrifice and assigned to the food category. When you find text that matches one of the categories, use the highlighter feature in Word to highlight the text in the corresponding color. Note that a single response may contain text belonging to more than one category.
When you finish coding all of the responses using the highlighter, go back and count the number of responses that contained text from each of the five categories. Once you have the count, divide that number by 20 to find the percentage of responses that correspond to that category. Enter this information into the table at the bottom of the page. Note that the percentages will likely add up to more than 100% because some responses may be counted more than once if they contain text from more than one category. Finally, write a brief description of your findings. Explain (in words) which categories were most common and provide a brief quote that you think best illustrates each respective category.

Refer to Additional materials. The research question is “What is the correlation between sexual assault and drug/alcohol consumption at HBCU?” if you want to edit the question and make it more to the writers liking that is fine. I will add sources I already found to support the original question if you don’t edit the question.

EACH QUESTION MUST BE ANSWERED IN ESSAY FORM, I AM PUERTO RICAN FROM PONCE, SO THE PAPER SHOULD REFLECT THAT. ALSO, ONE SOURCE THAT MUST BE CITED IS CORNELL & HARTMAN. EACH QUESTION MUST BE NUMBERED.
1. Following Gordon (see below), what is assimilation? Why is it important 1) for the host society and 2) for the immigrant population?
2. For a case study, choose a family household that is within 2 generations of emigrating to the U.S. (i.e., the oldest members can be born here of immigrant parents). Ask the following questions: Where did they come from? [be as specific as possible] Why did they leave? When did they arrive? What determined where they settled? Did they arrive as a family or in a “chain”? What resources, or “capital(s)”, did they bring with them that shaped the direction and pace of their assimilation?
3. Use interviews and observation to determine the extent of assimilation, paying attention to generational differences. Assess for major types or stages of assimilation: a) cultural (including educational), b) social (including residential), c) identificational, and d) marital. Because assimilation is a process that entails interrelated “stages”, it is imperative to address differences between generations.
4. Is there still meaningful ethnic persistence (i.e., partial assimilation) in regard to culture, social relationships, and marital choice? Does this slow or even oppose assimilation?
5. Is there evidence of a “new” ethnicity (e.g., Latinos, Caribbean, Desi, Asian) that limits assimilation?
6. How typical is this family’s experience for the ethnic group in the city or metropolitan region? Note and explain any discrepancies.
7. With your case study in mind, is there political resistance to the group’s assimilation? Is the group assimilating in a position of inequality and subordination?

CONTENT: Thesis 2a: Argue relationship between key terms and specific topical context. 2b: Make argument concise. 2c: Make argument defensible. 2d: Produce argument with nuance. 2e: Integrate key terms explicitly.
– 2a/2e: This reads as an incorrect usage of the term “artful practices.” Review in course material.
2c: Reduce lists (e.g., choose “communications” or “relationships”; reduce use of conjunctions like “but” and “and”; etc.); clarify terms like “politically engaged” and “positions of the different states” and “the people” and “wide context” and “work.”
34d: Discuss in context of course material.
Reduce use of “it” to ensure clarity.
56c: Don’t quote.
