Economic Inequality and Family Change Working Group

The Economic Inequality and Family Change working group is designed to provide CFDR faculty and advanced graduate students the opportunity to read and discuss recent books by three leading scholars on how families change and cope with economic shifts and inequalities.  The books use a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods and address macro-level trends as well as micro-level responses in family behaviors.  If you are interested in joining this working group, please contact Karen Guzzo.
