The Moral Underground: How Ordinary People Subvert an Unfair Economy
Host Lisa Loving speaks with Lisa Dodson, a public sociologist at Boston College whose research interests include poverty, public policy, and low-income work and family life. She also specializes in collaborative research methods, conducting inquiry that includes the thinking of people “under study.” She has developed an area of specialty -- Poverty, Families, and Social Policy – focusing on the spreading effects of economic stratification. Her new book The Moral Underground: How Ordinary People Subvert an Unfair Economy is based on eight years of research about hidden resistance to an economy that harms millions of working families.
Lisa Dodson will speak in Portland this weekend.
