Sanford Schram

1975                                                                  2014


I am on the faculty in the Political Science Department at Hunter College, CUNY and in the Sociology Department at the CUNY Graduate Center where I teach in the doctoral program in Political Science. I am also active as a Faculty Associate at the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute (which is part of Hunter College).


My research and scholarship are focused on the politics of poverty and inequality. My work is multi-methodological, using history, political theory, psycho-analysis, discourse analysis, ethnography, visual culture, quantitative analysis and other forms of data analysis to examine multiple dimensions of the political economy of poverty and inequality in the US and elsewhere.  My writing is interdisciplinary, if primarily located in Political Science, Sociology, Public Affairs, Social Work and related disciplines especially as it relates to issues of social welfare policy, poverty studies, race, gender, and class relations. In Political Science my work bridges the sub-fields of Public Policy, American Politics, Political Behavior, Race and Ethnic Politics, Gender Politics, Contemporary Political Theory, and Political Economy.
