Evicted: Poverty & Profit in the American City
The Furman Sociology Department sponsored a lecture by Matthew Desmond (PhD, Harvard) on April 19. Dr. Desmond discussed his book Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. Desmond’s research addresses the significant challenges faced by low income families in urban areas simply trying to find a place to live. His in-depth qualitative research reveals the difficulties that current policies place on these families, which makes simply staying afloat, much less escaping poverty, a near impossibility.
