        Matthew Desmond, Urban Sociologist | MacArthur Fellows Program

        In this interview, 2015 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Desmond talks about why he became an urban sociologist with a focus on housing rights and what his research has taught him about the impact of eviction on poor families. In his investigations in Milwaukee, Desmond has revealed evidence that that eviction is a cause, rather than merely a symptom, of poverty. Through his work, Desmond has helped to shed light on the role of housing policy in sustaining poverty and racial inequality in large American cities. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
