Here are main questions I am being asked about the take home exam. I will add more as questions come in.
which industries (and how many industries) should I focus on? A: this is entirely up to you – decide if there is sufficient data/research to select one or more industries
is it people with disabilities or disabled people? A: this was covered at length in the lecture – please check your notes. Disabled person/employee etc is the correct use of language in a UK context
can I use material from outside the UK? A: yes just be sure to note the national context esp if this is relevant (e.g. some countries do not have protections for LGBT employees).
can I use an intersectional perspective for more than one question? A: Yes! Just make sure you’re not self-plagiarisng (i.e. repeating too much material))
is there a draft turnitin where I can check my similarity? A: This is a take home exam, so there is no draft turnitin
which are the theories covered in the course? A: this is something you can find from your own notes and the lecture slides
can I use economic theories? A: not really as this is a sociological course – you could critique a sociological theory by comparing to an economic theory although this might be difficult to do in 1500 words
