How has your thinking on this project been influenced by other people?
I had never previously thought that my project could cause social exclusion to individuals that may possess these genes but are not seen to be violent or have a past record with crime but because of Parvathy’s comment, I was able to understand the limitations of my project. To prevent this, I definitely want to include the limitations of looking at genetic material solely to define an individual’s likelihood of committing a crime. Through Ahrim’s comment, I was also able to understand the importance of using real-life examples and testimonies to strengthen my research and information as I communicate my project to wider audiences. Through Holly’s comment, I even learned that it may be important to look at different age groups and genders when looking at my research.
