Course Description This upper-level seminar brings together a small group of students for intensive study about the history of welfare using Mississippi as a case study.  The course involves several components: theoretical and historical reading about the evolution of the welfare state, specific analysis of welfare in Mississippi, an eight-day trip to Mississippi to map the availability of child care for welfare recipients and conduct interviews with users and providers of low-income child care centers, and post-trip analysis/digitizing of the data and writing of op-eds.  The course is designed in conjunction with a local advocacy organization, Mississippi Low-Income Child Care Initiative.
