David Harding discusses culture, poverty research with AAPSS

June 18, 2010

An American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) interview with David Harding explores the complex interdependency of culture and poverty and the influence of those factors on his research.

Culture, Harding explained to the AAPSS, “can help us understand both the processes that lead to poverty and the consequences of poverty.” In this interview, Harding also discusses how he hopes culture and poverty research will influence policymakers and what drives his interest in these topics.

This interview, available in full text and as a downloadable podcast, accompanies the May 2010 volume of The Annals, “Reconsidering Poverty and Culture,” which Harding co-edited.
