Welcome back! This week we rounded-up research on how gender shapes participation in college classrooms. We also cover new research on how federal disaster aid exacerbates inequality.
Gender and Participation in the College Classroom by Jean Marie Maier. We reconsider research on gender and who gets to be an “expert” in light of new research that shows that women are less likely to participate in college classrooms.
Disaster Relief’s Unequal Aid by Daniel Cueto-Villalobos. We feature new research that shows that, by privileging home ownership, the provision of federal disaster aid exacerbates existing wealth inequalities.
