Connie Snyder Mick, associate director for Community-Based Learning at the Center for Social Concerns, and co-director of the Poverty Studies Interdisciplinary Minor, has just published Poverty/Privilege: A Reader for Writers, with Oxford University Press. Taking a broad definition of poverty as the denial of choices and opportunities to live a decent life, the reader addresses the enduring question, “Why are people poor?” while also asking, “Why are people wealthy?” 

Poverty/Privilege examines the social, cultural, and political forces that offer—or deny—opportunities to people based on race, gender, age, and geography. By helping students understand how poverty works, this survey makes them aware of the problem and encourages them to become part of the solution.

Developed for first-year composition courses, the reader includes an interdisciplinary mix of public, academic, and cultural reading selections, providing students with the rhetorical knowledge and compositional skills required to participate effectively in discussions about poverty and privilege. Information on poverty studies and other subjects compiled by Snyder Mick along with her professional profile can be found at http://blogs.nd.edu/connie-snyder-mick/
