WHAT WE TALK ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT POVERTY

In her talk she will discuss this in more detail and show how social scientists can use literary fiction to analyze the cultural origins of welfare state models. In other words, this is a talk that will be of great interest to social scientists, historians and literary scholars.
