SURF-TUPH event: Lunch Talk with Dr. Clare Daniels on her book Mediating Morality: The Politics of Teen Pregnancy in the Post-Welfare Era


Downtown Campus

Tidewater Room 1208

The approach the United States has taken to addressing teen pregnancy—a ubiquitous concern in teen education and perennial topic in popular culture—has changed dramatically over the past few decades. Specifically since the radical overhaul of welfare policy in 1996. Clare Daniel argues, teen pregnancy, previously regarded as a social problem requiring public solutions, is seen as an individual failure on the part of the teens involved.
