Myths about American Poverty
October 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Clark Forum at Dickinson College presents Myths about American Poverty.
Few topics have as many myths, stereotypes, and misperceptions surrounding them as that of poverty in America. Co-authors of Poorly Understood: What America Gets Wrong About Poverty, in conversation with Professor Dan Schubert, will discuss their research and how it addresses and confronts many of the most widespread myths about American poverty.
This program is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and co-sponsored by the departments of American studies, history, sociology and the Center for Civic Learning & Action.
