Michele Lamont | Professor of Sociology and African American Studies at Harvard University

October 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Michele Lamont

With growing inequality, the American dream is becoming less effective as a collective myth. With its focus on material success, competition and self-reliance, the intensified diffusion of neoliberal scripts of the self is leading the upper-middle class toward a mental health crisis while the working class and low-income groups do not have the resources needed to live the dream. Come and join us as Michele Lamont speaks about her most recent research about self-worth in the current, chaotic American society.
