In my other life I research for-profit higher education and inequality. As a necessary complement to those interests I also study structural change, labor, and the morass that is today’s higher education “disruption” economy. MOOCs (C and X), DOOCs, badges, stamps, burn books and whatever else we’ve come up with lately. While I will be conducting research on poverty policy and for-profit workforce training at the Center for Poverty Research this Fall, I will also be giving a few public talks. This is one of the most fun parts of this job, by the way.
Center for Poverty Research Graduate Student Retreat is September 15-17. I believe this is only open to the UC-Davis community but I wanted to add it just in case anyone is local.
On October 24th I join the Carter G. Woodson Institute’s “Currents in Conversation” series to discuss my take on economic insecurity and higher education.
On December 5th I am the UW-Madison to discuss challenges to the Public Good and Public Higher Education for the FemSem lecture series.
Thank you to all my generous hosts for the invitation. If you are able to make any of the talks, please be sure to say hello!
