Poverty and the Humanities–Course site!

The next phase of Poverty, Promise, and Possibility, the course on Poverty and the Humanities, successfully launched on Wed. evening Oct. 27th! We have a great group and plan to get a lot done, drawing on the humanities to help us redefine and refine the definition of poverty and think through some humanities-based antipoverty programs! Course materials will be available on this site.
