You can write a paper based on this prompt:
Give me your best account/definition of social construction. Who do you most agree with, who do you disagree with, and who are you most influenced by (and why)? Take a stand on the following debates within the social construction literature. Is social construction best thought of causally or constitutively? Does either (or neither) do a good enough job of explaining the social phenomenon of misgendering or passing?
My abstract said something like this:
For my paper, I am going to attempt to answer the prompt that was provided by the professor. I believe that social constructions fall somewhere between both casual and constitutional definitions and I plan to argue for such. I want to provide examples from both causal and constitutional explanations when it comes to social phenomena like misgendering and passing. I would also like to expand past these two concepts to include other aspects of outward appearance and stereotyping that are influenced by social construction as well. I anticipate that the work done by Esa Diaz-Leon and Marques Well help me achieve this goal.
I can provide the Esa Diaz-Leon and Marques papers we read in class as he wants us to use the sources from class.
