What are some good articles/documents you've read as of late about class stratification and/or poverty?
Many of you know I’m now teaching sociology at a university in NY. Tomorrow, I begin a section on class stratification that will last around 2 classes and go into a section on race/ethnicity. Every week, my students are given articles that I find interesting so that they can write brief response papers and work on improving their writing and sociological thinking. I am having trouble locating a thought-provoking recent article on classism, the class struggle, poverty, etc. I would love your help locating an article that would be a good one to give out to my class. So far, I have this one which I liked because of intersections between class and race as well as mainstream/other as well as food/culture links. I will use it if you guys or my FB friends don’t find anything else. :) Thank you!
