Welfare Reform, Education Reform, Poverty and Beyond PSC authors and researchers book signing and conversation

Monday, April 29, 2002 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. Shaman Drum Bookstore 313 South State Street Refreshments

With welfare reform and changes in public education at the top of today's public policy agenda, how can social science contribute to the debate? University of Michigan authors and researchers David Featherman, Maris Vinovskis and Sheldon Danziger discuss the often uneasy relationship between social science and public policy-making at the federal and state levels as exemplified by the welfare and education reform movements now underway and current approaches to the problem of poverty in the United States.

Featherman, a professor of psychology and of sociology and director of the U-M Institute for Social Research (ISR), and Vinovskis, a professor of history, ISR research scientist and faculty member at the U-M School of Public Policy, will be signing copies of their most recent book, Social Science and Policy-Making: A Search for Relevance in the Twentieth Century, published by the University of Michigan Press.

Danziger, a contributor to that book, is a U-M professor of social work and public policy and directs the U-M Social Work Research Center on Poverty, Risk and Mental Health. He will sign copies of Understanding Poverty, co-edited with Robert Haveman and co-published by Harvard University Press and the Russell Sage Foundation.

This event was co-sponsored by the Shaman Drum Bookstore and the Institute for Social Research (ISR), the world's largest academic research and survey organization.
