Watch video of Professor of Sociology Dan Cornfield speaking at the Thinking Out of the Lunchbox program.
Cornfield spoke March 4 on “Pathways Out of Poverty, and Toward the American Dream: The Case of Nashville.”
The city of Nashville is an important case of the challenges and opportunities of reducing poverty in the service economy of the 21st century. What are the pathways into and out of poverty, and what concrete, citywide steps can be taken to help more Nashvillians pursue the American dream?
Vanderbilt University partners with the Nashville Public Library for the Thinking Out of the (Lunch) Box series, a series of lunchtime talks with a philosophical flavor.
