Interview a family member(s) to determine answers to the following questions. The family can be paternal, maternal, or both if desired. If for any reason you do not have access to immediate family, or your family does not know much of their heritage, you are welcome to interview parents/grandparents of any of your friends. Furthermore, if any of the questions do not apply to who you are interviewing feel free to skip these questions and add additional questions of your choice.
What is the ethnic origin of your family?
What was your family’s original homeland (nation, country, etc)?
If applicable, when did your family originally come to the U.S. or their respective homeland?
a.Where did they originally settle? Where do they live now?
What is one story that your family members remember about their migration roots?
Throughout this journal, authors Marco H.D. van Leeuwen and Ineke Maas discuss their historical research on social mobility and structure, as well as the shifts in the social imbalance in earlier years and what factors caused these outcomes. Marco H.D. van Leeuwen is an honorary research associate at the International Institute of Social History as well as a Professor of Historical Sociology in Utrecht. Ineke Maas is a Professor at the Department of Sociology at the Universiteit Amsterdam and studies trends in mobility throughout generations, in careers, as well as in marital situations. Due to their many qualifications, Leeuwen and Maas act as an exceptionally reliable source for my topic. This article connects to the Status Mobility and Reactions to Deviance and Subsequent Conformity journal by Elihu Katz, William L. Libby Jr., and Fred L. Strodtbeck because they both discuss the differences of social mobility throughout various eras. Zollman, Kevin James Spears. “Social Structure and the Effects of Conformity.” Synthese, vol. 172, no. 3, 2010, pp. 317–340. JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/40496044 Conforming to the rules and standards of one’s society can cause harmful or beneficial effects on a person, depending on the severity of the situation. Throughout this journal article, author Kevin James Spears Zollman discusses the overall effects conformity has on a person, and more specifically what effects conformity has on different obdurate social networks and their structure. By analyzing a mathematical model of the conformist behavior, Zollman was able to distinguish the positive effects conformist behavior has on individual reliability and the negative effects it has on a group’s reliability. Due to Zollman’s familiarity and research focus on game theory — the study of mathematical models of calculated reactions between reasonable decision makers — and his profession as an associate professor in the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University, he serves as an extremely credible source on this topic. In Voltaire’s Candide, Candide is influenced by his wealth and confidence about what lies ahead. It isn’t until Candide is throw out of his home that he realizes the hardships other people encounter and that he was wrong to be optimistic. This journal>GET ANSWER
