Stage 1: Within the subject of GENTRIFICATION, choose a general sociological topic that is of interest to you. To get ideas you may want to look over the course syllabus, re-read the Biro article assigned last week; check out the readings done in class and articles assigned, conversations we’ve had in class, or look through some sociological blogs (these blogs are NOT to be used as references/sources, but only as guides to help you with a potential topic):
