Students will prepare a 1220 page prospectus. A prospectus is a research proposal, and it is often used as a first-step in writing a research paper involving data collection and analysis. For this class, a prospectus must contain:
1. A topic
2. A research question
3. A literature review
4. At least one hypothesis or theoretical expectation
5. A research design
The goal of this project is for students to gain more knowledge about a particular area of LGBTQ politics & policy by reviewing additional books and articles not assigned the course that are focused on the students particular topic. This assignment will help students examine and analyze structural inequalities and hypothesize a causal process that helps explain current inequities or identify interventions to reduce them.
The topic can range from the effects of legal protections on LGBTQ peoples civic participation, the effects of out LGBTQ people holding public office, to the factors that might influence how American adults come to understand bisexuality.
