For my World Studies topic, after having a conversation with my EE supervisor I learned that I need to narrow down exactly what my issue is. I’m interested in looking at racism in Singapore as well as the whole world and how this is related to empathy, then using biology and psychology to explore this and relate it to racism. I’ve always had a strong interest in psychology and recently also the biological aspect of it. Looking at a concept such as empathy is something I’ve wanted to do as even through my daily life I’ve noticed how different people’s empathy levels are and I’ve always wondered what the causes are. After my conversation, I began looking into different articles online as well as recounting my own observations from living in Singapore to narrow down to the issue of racism and to refine my EE outline to make it more specific.
