Sociology 201***Introduction to the Study of Society

Sociological Social Update

For this assignment, you must compile a list of 25 social scientists, past and/or present, in the various fields of social science. You must briefly identify their main contribution(s); however, you cannot duplicate the names that appear on the S ociological S ocial R eview assignment (those names are duplicated below). You must do your own research to locate the individuals. You can use your textbook, the internet and scholarly publications. The update is worth 50 points toward your final grade.
