I was lucky to participate in the first Institute for Research on Poverty Workshop on Poverty 101 this past summer in Madison, Wisconsin. The gathering featured a number of world-class speakers presenting the latest information on understanding poverty. Participants were from a diverse range of fields. I brought back a number of new ideas and connections to inform both my research and teaching. Announcement is below
Materials from the Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP)’s Poverty 101 workshop, held in June 2013, are now available here. The site provides cutting-edge teaching resources for college-level instructors, including slide presentations on the concept of poverty, its causes, policy responses, and more!
