What social forces have contributed to making me the person I am today? How have broader social structures impacted and impinged my personal agency? In what ways has “the social” influenced my life story and my future prospects? Answering these questions is at the core of writing a sociological autobiography.
A sociobiography is not a traditional autobiography. It does not merely recount a series of events in chronological order as is the case with a historical autobiography. It does not simply give a descriptiveaccount of your life. Rather, it provides an interpretiveaccount of the social forces, structures, norms, and institutions that have made you the person you are today and are likely to impact your future. Your paper should cover past, present, and future.
A good sociobiography addresses issues like race, social class, gender, stratification, education, culture, the American Dream, and mass media. You do not have to address all of these, or every issue covered throughout your undergrad years. Focus on the ones that stand out the most in your life. Although there is no “magic number” of issues you should cover, I suggest focusing on 5-6 main issues/themes, and within those main themes you can integrate sub-themes into your analysis. The paper should not merely be a “laundry list” of events and sociological terms. Rather, it should revolve around a core argument/thesis highlighting the major sociological concepts you are using in your paper.
