Author Meets Critics: Jenifer Morton’s Moving Up Without Losing Your Way

April 27, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us for a discussion of Jennifer Morton’s book Moving Up Without Losing Your Way: The Ethical Costs of Upward Mobility including Harry Brighouse (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Robin Zheng (Yale-NUS), Olufemi Taiwo (Georgetown), and David O’Brien (Tulane).

From the book jacket: “Upward mobility through the path of higher education has been an article of faith for generations of working-class, low-income, and immigrant college students. While we know this path usually entails financial sacrifices and hard work, very little attention has been paid to the deep personal compromises such students have to make as they enter worlds vastly different from their own. Measuring the true cost of higher education for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, Moving Up without Losing Your Way looks at the ethical dilemmas of upward mobility―the broken ties with family and friends, the severed connections with former communities, and the loss of identity―faced by students as they strive to earn a successful place in society.”
