I’ve been asked about returning feedback/grades on research 2.
-these are ready for pick-up now for people in section 2 (because your comments on blog posts were due at noon today). These comments aren’t due until Friday for section 1. People who have completed these comments in section 1, your rubrics are ready for pick up as well.
-all will be in an envelope in front of my office.
Hope you all are well.
Hey y’all – I talked to a couple of people after class on Wednesday who were surprised to see I’d marked your papers “late.” But WAIT! You said, you’d posted on 11/23. But blog showed 11/24.
Stupid blog didn’t fall back when the time changed.
So if you submitted ON TIME but I marked you late, come show me your rubric, and I’ll add your points back.
Thanks for raising the issue, y’all!
Hi folks – I will be making research presentation grades/feedback available on a rolling basis. I have a manila envelope outside my door, your name will be on a piece of paper with info on it. Feel free to take it!
In other words – feedback is ready for people who presented yesterday.
Have a great holiday, all.
Hi folks. Here are rubrics for these 2 upcoming assignments.
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
- Alternative to research project 2 cmty improve rubric
- Presentation: Research present rubric
Here are some articles, a brief news podcast and a clip from PBS. I am still looking, if I find something else wonderful, I’ll ask you to read/watch/listen to it.
What I find FASCINATING is that I’m looking for work examining outcomes/consequences of rioting, and that is not prominent discourse in the U.S. We want to explain WHY, but not look through the end results, or the next stage.
In the meantime, you could work through these QUICKLY – plan on them for Wednesday,maybe into Friday…

Here’s what I’d like us all to read for class this week, all from Abu-Lughod:
Monday: through ch 5 (the NY chapters)
Wed: ch 7 (LA, 1992)
Fri: Ch 8 (theory/comparison chapters)
For the empirical chapters, get a sense of the narrative (what happened, etc.); but also keep your eyes on how do we explain riots, and how to explain NOT riots. I am still v interested in responses and outcomes of riots – not sure our material gets us there yet…
Hello everyone. For tomorrow’s discussion we will be focusing on New York between the 1943 riot and the 1964 uprising. Please be familiar with the end of chapter four starting with the section: Intensified Political Mobilization in the 1940’s Foreshadows the Next Riot and get through all of chapter five. Thank you, see you Monday.
I’m about done working through your research papers, and what strikes me is (a) how much work you all have put into these interesting, creative projects; and (b) how much work I am putting into reading and thinking through your interesting, creative projects.
This is more work on BOTH ends than I’d intended.
So I have an option to suggest for you for research project 2.
Go make your community better. Choose what you mean by “community,” what you mean by “better.” But do it in such a way that acknowledges or impacts the distribution of power in that community. (Ah! There’s the catch! Because you have to think through how your type of community engagement is related to issues of power in the community!) When you are done, write up 3-4 paragraphs on what you did, why you chose that option, and how it did/did not work to have an impact on your community, distribution of power within it. **I would like to also encourage you to work with a partner or a group – because we’ve seen that collective action tends to have more impact than individual actions – but this is just a suggestion.
Your alternative – and this may appeal to some of you!! – is to keep research project #2 as previously assigned.
I welcome feedback – we can talk about this anytime.
