In this episode of 1050 Bascom, we had the opportunity to talk with Professor Halpern-Meekin from the UW-Madison School of Human Ecology to talk about issues surrounding poverty and the pandemic. Prof. Halpern-Meekin shared her analysis of the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 crisis on millions of people in the US and around the world who live in poverty or have been pushed to the economic brink by the crisis. Prof. Halper-Meekin also offered helpful insights into the role that federal and state policies such as unemployment benefits and eviction moratoriums play in preventing more people from falling into further economic despair. Our discussion covered a lot of ground from the US health care system to racial disparities in health outcomes in Covid-19 to the trade-off millions of people face between going back to work when there isn’t a virtual option while risking the threat of contracting the virus. We learned a lot from our discussion, and hope you will too.

Sarah Halpern-Meekin, "Social Poverty: Low-Income Parents and the Struggle for Family and Community Ties" (NYU Press, 2019)

Does a person’s well-being go well beyond how much money they have in their bank account? In Social Poverty: Low-Income Parents and the Struggle for Family and Community Ties (NYU Press, 2019), Dr. Sarah Halpern-Meekin provides an in-depth picture of the social ties among low-income, unmarried parents, highlighting their often-ignored forms of hardship. Drawing from in-depth interviews with 31 couples who participated in a government-sponsored relationship education program called Family Expectations, Dr. Halpern-Meekin brings necessary attention to the relational and emotional dimensions of socioeconomic disadvantage.

Halpern-Meekin takes an unconventional approach by focusing on social poverty as more than just a derivative of economic poverty, having its own condition, which also perpetuates poverty. In Social Poverty, Halpern-Meekin sheds light on the fundamental place of core socioemotional needs in the lives of humans. The author highlights a new direction for policy and poverty research that can enrich scholars’ understanding of disadvantaged families around the nation.
