Module 1 Quiz: Select one theorist from either the classical or contemporary foundations of
sociological theory (Marx, Durkheim, Weber, Du Bois, Mills, Merton, Habermas, Foucault, or
Bourdieu). Then, in 400-500 words:
1. Give an overview of their main theoretical contributions (5 points)
2. Then, apply their theory (or part of their theory) to a current event that is relevant to you.
For example, I could use Bourdieu’s concept cultural capital to explore how my own educational
background affords me a certain degree of social status and power within the classroom setting.
Alternative, I could use Marx’s theory to examine the current debate surrounding equal pay in
US professional soccer organizations.
