Title: The Study of Poverty Has a Long Connection to the History of Racism and Racial Knowledge
Author: O'Connell, Anne
Identifier: 00320
Abstract: Social welfare policies are shaped by the way poverty has been viewed in history. When social policies today are studied in separation from studying the past, it erases their long connection to race and the impact on women’s bodies.
