How well does the Chicago School model explain the changes they, and the immigrant community, went through? What lessons can we learn about community from the novel?

  • The JungleHow can Sinclair’s masterpiece be considered an ethnographic* work in the Chicago School

    tradion?

    Begin by providing a brief précis of the novel itself (remember I’ve read it, so this should be short

    and not take up more than one page). Then, select passages or events from the storyline and show

    how they exemplify certain principles, perspecves, and >ndings of the Chicago School (the model

    and major principles of human ecology).

  • It would be helpful to begin by construcng a typology charng the changes the Rudkus family wentthrough in The Jungle, illustrang the dialecc between infrastructure and superstructure and

    demonstrang the Chicago School model. When developing the typology, you will be comparing the

    changes members of the Rudkus family go through from a “community” to a “society” (Tönnies and

    Simmel). This largely takes place in the “accommodaon” stage; as such, note the changes family

    members have to make to their new environment. I hope this helps to clarify the quesons–if not,

    send an email.

    How well does the Chicago School model explain the changes they, and the immigrant community,

    went through? What lessons can we learn about community from the novel? What helps to

    strengthen a community? What tears it apart? How does this support or refute the Chicago School’s

    ideas?

    *Ethnography: a descripve account of social life and culture in a parcular social system based on

    detailed observaons of what people actually do. Ethnographies are used to study how cultures

    develop historically and to compare them with an earlier me or other cultures.

    You should consider this paper a research paper. You have to develop the theory as discussed in

    lectures and your readings. The Jungle and Work and Community are your “data sets” to draw on for

    evidence. This means you should be cing at least once per paragraph with a few excepons.
