President Obama and the Politics of Reform Speaker Series Continues March 4
The Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics, with co-sponsorship from the UO Political Science and Sociology Departments, will continue its speaker series, “Great Expectations: Obama and the Politics of Reform,” with a presentation at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, March 4, in Knight Law Center 110.
Leslie McCall, associate professor of sociology at Northwestern University, will present “The Undeserving Rich? American Perceptions of Inequality, Opportunity, and Redistribution.”
Professor McCall earned her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in 1995. Her areas of expertise include social inequality, economic and political sociology, methods, and social theory. Her work on rising class inequality among women in the United States, and, more generally, on how racial, educational, and gender inequality variously overlap and conflict with one other, has been published in a number of journals as well as in her book, Complex Inequality: Gender, Class, and Race in the New Economy (Routledge, 2001).
This event is free and open to the public.
