Viviana Zelizer, Lloyd Cotsen ‘50 Professor of Sociology, Princeton University, will present her work on “The College Economy: How Students Manage Everyday Inequalities.” As elite universities increasingly recruit low-income students into a mostly affluent campus community, how do students manage economic disparities in their everyday interactions? Drawing from interviews with Princeton undergraduates, Dr. Viviana Zelizer explores cross-class transactions involving shared expenses, loans, and gifts.
