From “Manscaping Men” to “No Country for Old Wo/Men” Capstone Students Present Innovative Independent Research Projects

Posted on December 16, 2016

On December 13th nine sociology majors presented their Senior Capstone Experience (SOCI 392) research project to the scientific community of Case Western Reserve University. Each project represented an independent product reflective of the emerging intellectual interests and strengths of each student. The topics were drawn from a diversity of sociological areas, such as Gender & Sexualities; Economic Sociology; Crime and Delinquency; and Social Inequality. As you will see below, the students utilized a number of methodologies for their projects, as well.
