This course examines poverty and the family and explores fundamental issues facing policymakers. We will use gender and race as lenses to examine inequities and the intent of anti-poverty policies. Topics covered will include a historical and current look at how poverty is defined, who is poor and why; the changing nature of the family, family needs and family income as it relates to poverty; 20th and 21st century U.S. social policy against a background of declining incomes; and the fiscal and legislative framework for current policy debates.
