The Social Science and Policy Forum (SSPF) at the University of Pennsylvania is holding a one-day conference on September 19, 2014, to discuss "The War on Poverty at 50: Its History and Legacy." The meeting will commence with a roundtable discussion of Michael Katz's The Undeserving Poor: America's Enduring Confrontation with Poverty (1990), which was reissued in a second, updated edition last year.  The full program is available now on the SSPF website. Please check there for additional information about the schedule and location.
