BACKGROUND In understanding the pattern and cause of social inequality and finding the solution, academic research articles contain richer information than other sources of social knowledge (e.g., news, Social Media, Youtube, and your friends). However, these researches rarely have an impact on tacking our reality. Why? One of the issues at stake here is communication. The authors of academic papers assume that their readers are other academics who are familiar with previous studies and specific jargon circulated in their field of specialization. It makes their works less accessible to potential audiences outside of academia.

BACKGROUND
In understanding the pattern and cause of social inequality and finding the solution, academic research articles contain richer information than other sources of social knowledge (e.g., news, Social Media, Youtube, and your friends). However, these researches rarely have an impact on tacking our reality. Why?
One of the issues at stake here is communication. The authors of academic papers assume that their readers are other academics who are familiar with previous studies and specific jargon circulated in their field of specialization. It makes their works less accessible to potential audiences outside of academia.
To solve this problem, we need efforts from both sides of authors and readers. While authors should do their best to introduce their works in plain language, readers can benefit from learning academic works efficiently and strategically. I believe you are the people who should know how to consume advanced discussion on social inequality. It is because you are someone who will pay the cost of a new social inequality and solve this problem with like-minded colleagues if you want to do that.
This assignment invites you to read (1) the TWO blog posts that social inequality researchers have written and (2) the essential parts of the researches on which those posts are based. After finishing your readings, you should write your memos systematically. These memos will help your future self, who will likely forget what you read now, conveniently use core insights from the articles without reading through them again. This assignment instruction includes the guideline to write good reading notes (“ the AIC Notes ” developed by Professor Raul Pacheco-Vega ). GOAL
Learn how to read and summarize academic articles
Learn where you can find the no-jargon summaries of the cutting-edge studies on social inequality and how to consume them strategically
