SOCL 3270 Poverty and Place

4 semester hours

This course will guide participants in an examination of the multi-faceted aspects of poverty, including geographic landscapes, primary catalysts, and both commonly accepted and alternative means of measurement through the lenses of race, space, place, and scale. Additionally, it will expose us to and guide us through several historical and contemporary debates, as well as discussions regarding relevant social policies and resulting societal impacts. Finally, we will also address myths, stereotypes, and widely held perceptions of the poor.
