WHAT IS THE KRUECKEBERG DOCTORAL CONFERENCE?
The Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference is organized by doctoral students for doctoral students engaged in urban-, planning-, and policy-related research across disciplines and universities in the tri-state NJ-NY-PA metropolitan region. Named after Professor Donald A. Krueckeberg, the conference commemorates Don Kreuckeberg’s long-running commitment to doctoral education by providing a one-day forum highlighting doctoral student research at the cutting edge of urban studies, planning, and public policy.
Doctoral students at any stage of dissertation research are invited and encouraged to present their work at the conference. You can participate in the conference if you are first year and trying out a topic, you have just defended a finished dissertation, or you are anywhere in between. Presentations can outline a tentative research topic, survey the literature, report interim findings, or overview a completed dissertation. Each presenter will have 15 minutes, followed by a Q&A period at the end of each session.

Dr. Jeounghee Kim is an Associate Professor at School of Social Work, Rutgers University in New Brunswick. She studies the economic well-being and mobility of disadvantaged individuals and conducts quantitative data analyses applying longitudinal research methods to large public data. She is particularly interested in how human capital (e.g., education, training, and workforce development, etc.) and various public assistance policies and programs (e.g., income security, food assistance, Workforce Investment Act, etc.) affect the labor market and marriage outcomes of individuals with disadvantaged backgrounds. She is currently examining how immigrants’ post-immigration college enrollment and job training activities as well as their labor market returns to those activities vary by socioeconomic status using the Survey of Income and Program Participation. She also teaches policy analysis, social welfare policies and services, and women’s issues for MSW and PhD programs. She earned her doctoral degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
“Poverty Policy and the Politics of the Poor”
Frances Fox Piven , Ph.D.
Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Sociology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York
Wednesday, December 4, 2013 – 12:15pm
Armitage Hall, 3rd floor, Faculty Lounge
Lunch will be provided
Frances Fox Piven is a Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Sociology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Among her books, many co-authored with Richard A. Cloward, are Regulating the Poor, Poor People’s Movements, Why Americans Don’t Vote, Challenging Authority, Keeping Down the Black Vote, and Who’s Afraid of Frances Fox Piven: The Collected Writings of the Professor Glenn Beck Loves to Hate.
Drawing on American history, Piven will present an overview of the two-sided relationship between welfare policy and the politics of the poor. There have been periods in the not-so-distant past when poor people became important political actors in the shaping of social policy. Most of the time, however, including in our own time, policy is designed to inhibit influence by the poor. Piven will delineate the conditions under which policy becomes an instrument to politically suppress the poor, and also, the conditions that encourage more democratic policy-making.
This event is co-hosted by the Urban Studies Program at Rutgers-Camden.
