The Catherine McLaughlin Hakim '70 Lecture Series proudly presents:
Heterogeneity in U.S. Neighborhood Poverty
Featured Speaker: Mario Luis Small, Ph.D.
Mario Luis Small, Ph.D., has published books and numerous articles on urban poverty, personal networks, and the relationship between qualitative and quantitative social science methods. Small is currently writing a book on how people decide whom to approach when seeking confidants and studying the differences in the experience of ghetto poverty across American cities.
This annual lecture series was established by Dr. Raymond Hakim in honor of his late wife, Catherine McLaughlin Hakim ’70. A sociology major at Emmanuel, Catherine studied under longtime sociology professor Sister Marie Augusta Neal, SND, who left an especially indelible mark on her student experience. The lecture series commemorates Catherine’s life, her fondness for Emmanuel, and the relationships she formed at the College and continued to maintain throughout her life and is open to students and alumni. Sponsored by the Emmanuel College Department of Sociology, the Catherine McLaughlin Hakim Lecture Series focuses on issues of sociology, social justice and public policy on the local, national and international levels.
