The Stone Center for Inequality Dynamics (CID) is an open and multidisciplinary research center, bringing together students and faculty from a variety of fields, including sociology, economics, public policy, social work, philosophy, education, and others. It pursues cutting-edge research and innovative teaching on one of the central societal challenges of our time: social inequality. With a focus on the dynamics of social inequality, CID’s scientific mission is to develop a better understanding of changes and stability in social inequality across time, generations, and sociopolitical contexts. The center also helps expand the social scientific data infrastructure available to support research on these topics and increases the accessibility of high-quality data for inequality researchers everywhere.
Join the Stone Center for Inequality Dynamics for the next installment of the CID Speaker Series as Jacob Faber, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Sociology and Public Service, New York University, presents: “Exploring the roles of segregation by location and lender on racial inequality mortgage access.”
Stone Center for Inequality Dynamics Director and Professor of Sociology Alexandra (Sasha) Killewald has dedicated her career to studying how social identities are related to time use, pay, and wealth. “How does fatherhood change men’s wages? If a woman earns more money than her male partner, who does the housework?” she asks. “How has the gender pay gap changed over time?” Using quantitative methods to study inequality in the United States, these are just some of the questions Sasha answers in her work.
Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning Associate Dean and Professor Kathy Velikov and WAM Study Director Fabian Pfeffer have released the second of a two-video series that explores the divides and radical new approaches to propose solutions at different scales that make quality housing available for all. The all too obvious state of two extremes — those who have extreme wealth and those who live in poverty and housing instability — is undeniable, unsustainable, but resolvable.
