specific attention to biosocial explanations of crime, which are framed in Chapter 14 of Lily, Cullen, and Ball, as well as articles by Ellis (2005) as well as Rocque and colleagues (2012). The assignment is to recognize specific elements of genetics within biosocial criminology. Watch the attached video documentary “Three Identical Strangers” and address the following questions in at least two full pages of content with 4 peer reviewed outside sources being integrated into the discussion. First, briefly describe “Three Identical Strangers”, what is the main plot, who are the main characters, and what ethical issues are described. Second, how does the documentary exemplify or frame elements of genetics discussed within Chapter 14, Ellis (2005), as well as Rocque and colleagues (2012). You can take any direction you like here though some discussion of behavioral genetics would benefit this section. Third, after reviewing the materials and documentary, what are the greatest strengths of biosocial research and what are the biggest concerns associated with this perspective in general as well as how they relate to explaining crime? As part of this discussion briefly frame the extent that biosocial explanations are beneficial as a whole to criminological theory. I have attached the two sources, Ellis and Rocque that they will need to use along with 4 other outside peer reviewed sources.

As polarization occurs in the U.S. job market, this will affect other social institutions. For example, if midlevel education won’t lead to employment, we could see polarization in education levels as well. Use the Sociological Imagination to discuss what social institutions may be impacted, and how.

The video worksheet assignment for this module is the short documentary film Dear Governor Brown (2016). At that time, the governor of California was Jerry Brown, hence the title (our governor now is Gavin Newsom). This video examines the oil and gas industry in California, and its impacts upon residents and the state. This video touches upon many of the topics covered in Ch. 15 of the textbook in the section on the Environment. It looks at problems such as consumption and waste (pollution), as well as environmental racism and injustice. It considers issues of sustainability, and it also serves as an example of how groups within the environmental movement organize to promote changes in public opinion and policy.
The video was produced by a political interest group, Californians Against Fracking, that opposes the oil and gas industry. You can check out their website at: Environment California (https://environmentcalifornia.org/page/cae/californians-against-fracking/FAQ). We could say that the video is a piece of propaganda, in other words, it’s material with an agenda which is designed to persuade viewers. It frames issues in a particular way. You may agree or disagree with its message, but the film features several dramatic case studies to elicit support for the cause.
The practices of the gas and oil industry continue to stir debate. It is worth noting recent budget cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the government agency established in 1970 to set standards and enforce rules to protect human and environmental health, and control pollution. This may make it more difficult for the EPA to carry out its mission. In 2017, Trump also signed an executive order to expand U.S. oil and gas exploration, which opens the door to new oil drilling on federal lands and off the coast of California — including in Santa Barbara and the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary.

Watch the video and respond to the following prompts. It might be a good idea to take notes while watching, so you can refer to these in your responses. You also have the advantage of pausing or returning to any point within the film for more information, clarification, or to capture details about a specific scene.
Please be detailed and thorough–this means that you’ll need more than just a couple of sentences for each response. In these writing assignments, usually more is better. Develop your explanations with lots of description, discussion, and analysis. If stuck, ask yourself, “what more could I say about this?” Make sure that you give specific examples from the video to support your answers. At the same time, I don’t want you to make a transcript of the video–that is not the point (and may constitute plagiarism if you don’t cite properly). What I want is to hear your reflections in your own voice–not just paraphrasing the narration. This is your chance to show me what you got out of watching this video.
Number your responses as below (but don’t include the questions themselves in your response). Please cut and paste your text directly, do not attach any document files.
Describe the history of the oil industry in California.
What accounts for the recent boom in oil production in the state?
According to the video, what is the relationship between oil production and the historic drought in California?
Why are the filmmakers critical of Governor Jerry Brown?
According to the video, what are the main threats to human and environmental health posed by oil production? Please make reference to at least two case studies in the film.
According to the video, how does oil production exacerbate environmental injustice? Who is most at risk?
The Social Construction of Race and Ethnicity
Due: November 21, 2021 at 11:59 PM CDT
Length: 1200 to 2000 words
Citation Style: MLA 8
During the unit on race and ethnicity (Chapter 15), we’ve talked a lot about why racial and ethnic categories exist and how and why these categories change. We have discussed how humans are often socialized to believe that race and ethnicity are biological in nature (have a genetic basis). However, as we are learning in class, race and ethnicity are actually socially constructed.
In simple terms, this means that instead of remaining static, unchanged, and 100% objective, racial and ethnic categories are subjective. Definitions of race and ethnicity are constructed (and deconstructed) by society and definitions of race and ethnicity change throughout history and depending on where you are in the world.
As we learned from the documentary, racial and ethnic categories are socially created and/or changed for a purpose (even if that purpose is not a conscious decision). The way we are socialized to think about these identity categories–as “deviant” or “normal”, “good” or “bad”– changes as well. As people interested in sociology it is our job to examine what these purposes are.
In your 1200-2000 word essay, please address all of the following questions. Make sure to include examples of all of the concepts you are asked to define.
Remember to incorporate at least two sources from outside of class in your essay!
Define race and ethnicity in ways that clearly distinguish the two concepts. Explain how both race and ethnicity are socially constructed.
Remember, although both race and ethnicity are socially constructed, they are constructed in different ways.
Discuss in detail why societies have constructed (and reconstructed) racial and ethnic categories throughout history. What purpose(s) does defining race or ethnicity a certain way serve?
Think about how social power might come into play here. Who has the most power to define social things (in this case certain races or ethnicities) as “normal” or as “deviant”?
Why would those with social power want to define certain racial or ethnic categories a certain way? For what reason(s)? The documentary and the redlining video for Week 10 would be useful sources in answering this question in addition to readings.
Define the concept of stereotypes. How do stereotypes shape how we are socialized to think about race and ethnicity? In other words, how do stereotypes impact what we think we “know” about race and ethnicity?
