Assignment: Using Interview in research

Interview two different individuals regarding their positions in society.  Analyze their responses regarding:

  1. Identify each person’s class, race, and gender.
  2. What role has class, race, and gender played in their lives?  How do you see these stratifiers as playing a role, even if the interviewee is unaware of it?
  3. Apply one of the sociological perspectives (structural-functional, social-conflict, or symbolic-interaction) to the individuals’ lives.  Why did you choose this particular perspective?  How does it explain each person’s life and life choices?
  4. What are some the benefits and limitations to using interview as a research methodology?
  5. Analyze each person’s components of culture (language, symbols, material objects, and behaviors) and relate them to his/her stratified position in society.

Question 1

Suppose you are faced with a terminally ill client who is in a great deal of pain. The client indicates to you in a calm, reasonable way that she is going to drive out to an isolated spot in a state park, go sit under her favorite tree, and after making a farewell message to her family, will kill herself. Discuss the ethical, legal, and moral dilemmas you would be faced with in this situation.
