Focus on one concept [or perhaps two interrelated concepts] or ideas expressed in the reading materials for this week. Those concepts/ideas are: Black feminism, Relation of Difference & Power: difference, domination, & equilibrium, Standpoint epistemology, Black feminist standpoint, and Intersectionality, and Matrix of Domination. Which concept/idea did you find most intriguing or powerful? The gist of the assignment is for you to engage—in an analytically sound way—with the theories [the explanations] we cover in the course. In order to engage with the theories, you need to:
Clearly identify and define the specific concept[s] used by the theorist [a couple sentences],
Explain what the concept[s] helps us to understand about the social world.
Apply the concept/theory provided by the theorist to a contemporary example, being clear to explain why the example you provide is an example of the concept/theory [a paragraph].
