UW Geography Professors Seek a New Perspective on Poverty

University of Washington geography professors Victoria Lawson and Sarah Elwood are leading the effort to alter how we perceive and study poverty around the world. Co-founders of the Relational Poverty Network, they are looking to shift thinking about “the poor and poor others” to thinking about relationships of power and privilege at a time when issues of economic inequality are part of the national and local dialogue.
