Hanley and Co-author Publish New Book on Race, Work, and the American Dream
Prof. Caroline Hanley, a Public Policy faculty affiliate in the Department of Sociology who teaches undergraduate courses on research methods and labor, has recently published a new book, Work in Black and White: Striving for the American Dream. In the book, Prof. Hanley and her co-author Enobong Hannah Branch ask the question: How do stories embedded in American culture influence what Black and White Americans think about who can and should have access to the "American dream"? Check out this article from W&M News where Prof. Hanley recently discussed the book's evidence and conclusions. Congratulations Prof. Hanley on this incredibly timely and important piece of scholarship!
