Professor Pruitt Joins Poverty and Geography Network

Professor Lisa R. Pruitt has been invited to join the Poverty and Geography Network, a multi-disciplinary network established by the National Poverty Research Center at the Institute for Research on Poverty. As a member, Pruitt will contribute to the Network's effort to examine the relationships between geographic location, poverty, and inequality, and to explore policies or interventions that address spatial barriers to well-being.

Lisa R. Pruitt, Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor at UC Davis School of Law, is a scholar whose recent work explores the legal relevance of rural spatiality, including how it inflects dimensions of gender, race, and ethnicity.  Pruitt's work also considers rural-urban difference in transnational and international contexts.
