Soc 420: Studies in Housing Insecurity

Sociology & Anthropology

For the majority of low-income American families, housing is their biggest expense, and often their biggest stressor. Research is clear that the dynamics of housing exert an enormous influence on one's health, job stability, educational success, and other matters we deem important to well-being. Debates about how to provide affordable and secure housing for all are widespread, and heated. This course examines these issues firsthand through the collection and analysis of original data in the Lafayette-Oxford-University community.
