Description:

Please join the American Politics Workshop as they host Dr. Patricia Posey, the Provost's Postdoctoral Fellow in the Political Science and a faculty affiliate of the Race and Capitalism Project at the University of Chicago. Session details forthcoming. 

Dr. Patricia Posey is Provost's Postdoctoral Fellow in the Political Science and a faculty affiliate of the Race and Capitalism Project at the University of Chicago, where she specializes in race and American political economy. Her current manuscript considers the political participation of marginalized groups and the necessity to ensure the representation of their interests. She looks to fill the gap in the ways financial services such as pawnshops, check-cashing outlets, auto title loans, and payday loans (collectively known as the fringe economy) exacerbate the relationship among race, political participation, and political economy. Addressing the political behaviors of those touched by the fringe economy is necessary because these individuals compromise an often neglected voice in society: the overwhelmingly poor, disproportionately minority. Her work draws on novel geographic data, survey data, and interview data from Chicago, IL and Philadelphia, PA.
