The time you invest in picking a topic will pay off during your research!
The boxes on this page suggest some database, book and journal sources to help you in choosing a topic. Good luck!
A quick search of the "Opposing Viewpoints" book holdings is another way of finding current topics in sociology. UW-Sheboygan owns 200 titles in this series; all of which provide a "point-counter point" discussion of an issue and a bibliography of sources. Browsing the table of contents in journals related to the field of sociology is another good way of finding paper topics.
