Who, what, where

A good topic will set your parameters. As you work through your research, define your boundaries to make your research and writing manageable and focused.  Not in any specific order:

  • What is the issue you want to look at?
  • Who is affected? A group (domestic workers, men, Gays, etc.)
  • Where? A region or country, workplace, cultural group, etc.
  • What do you already know about this topic? (textbook, lecture, etc.)
  • What do you want to find out?
  • Is there anything that confuses you about this topic?
  • What are the origins of this issue of gender inequality?
  • What work still needs to be done?
  • Who is working on the solution to this social issue?
