Syllabi & Bibliographies from AJC:
The Welfare Reform Syllabus was created by top poverty scholars in an effort to create a more informed public debate about welfare reform in the wake of the 20th anniversary of PRWORA. Themes include: the history of welfare as a New Deal, the racial politics of the backlash against welfare, the realities of pre-1996 welfare use, the context of the legislation within the rise of neoliberal austerity policies and the criminalization of poor people.
Curated by the ELLE.com Scholars, this syllabus features texts, music, and visual art submitted by young women of color, ages 16-30, reflecting on the themes of Solange's album A Seat at the Table.
