The Poverty and Place conference will bring together scholars
from across many disciplines—sociology, economics, law,
education, social work, geography, planning—to present and
discuss their work on the ways in which space and place inflect
various dimensions of poverty.
The Center hosts an annual graduate student retreat attended by
faculty and students engaged in poverty research from a variety
of disciplines. Faculty provide advice and workshops on grad
school success and the career market, while students give
presentations on their dissertation work to a crowd of
enthusiastic and supportive colleagues.
Students from the departments of including Economics, Education,
Human Development, Law, Nutrition, Psychology, and Sociology are
nominated by our research affiliates to participate.
