This course will explore how influences from the family and social context help to develop who you are and where you are today. We will discuss how socialization experiences across childhood, adolescence and into adulthood may be important to how you think of yourself today and into the future. How you (the self) are also important to this process will be examined. We will investigate these concepts through reading both scholarly work as well as novels, keeping journals about reflective thoughts from the readings, doing tasks to examine various family and social influences, and interviews of family members and important mentors in your life to reflect on events or influences that might have changed your life trajectory.
