What can we learn about American attitudes toward our most marginalized populations by examining the ways in which movies treat poor people and the places they live? Join us for a whirlwind tour of a century's worth of American cinema as we try to makes sense of how culture might matter for the making and unmaking of social policy.

Stephen Pimpare is the author of the award-winning A People's History of Poverty in America and, most recently, Ghettos, Tramps, and Welfare Queens: Down and Out on the Silver Screen.
