Book Talk: Invisible in Austin

Gordon White Building Room 2.206

2:00pm – 3:30pm

Austin is renowned as a fast-growing city and a cool place to live. But, the growing gap between rich and poor is reconfiguring its cityscape.

In Invisible in Austin, Javier Auyero and graduate students explore the lives of those working at the bottom of the social order. Recounting their life stories with empathy and sociological insight, the authors show us how these lives are driven by a complex mix of individual and social forces.
