Honors welcomes U-M faculty member and author of Paying for the Party, Elizabeth Armstrong. Her book, co-authored with Laura Hamilton, highlighted this August in The New York Times, addressed social inequality on college campuses in a culture of "status seeking and sororities. Mapping different pathways available to 'MU' students, the authors demonstrate that the most well-resourced and seductive route is a "party pathway" anchored in the Greek system and facilitated by the administration" (as quoted in the Harvard University Press). Join us for this interesting discussion.
