Last week, the US Supreme Court overturned the 1973 “Roe vs. Wade” decision. If you want to write this paper about another event, please consult with me during office hours first.

 

.What happened in each of the three dimensions of power in the process that led to that event?

.Define each of the dimensions with reference to Neuman’s Chapter 1. You may also use lecture slides but must cite the Neuman reading (or the original Lukes and Gaventa readings, but that is up to you if you want to read those).

.Give at least one example of something that happened in each of the three dimensions of power using credible published media sources. Cite those sources.

 

.Give at least one example of things that are currently happening after the event that fits into each one of the three dimensions of power using credible published media sources. Cite those sources.

 

.How may Marx’s or Gramsci’s theories help us explain the outcome of the decision and reactions to it?

 

.Briefly define the concept you wish to use. Cite at least one Marx or Gramsci reading. You may also use lecture slides but must cite a reading by Marx and/or Gramsci.

.Briefly explain how that concept may help to explain the decision or its aftermath.
