How poverty steals peoples’ dreams

Inequality can even have an impact on something money can’t buy: our dreams. Karen A. Cerulo, professor of sociology at Rutgers University and editor of Sociological Forum, joins host Krys Boyd to discuss why socioeconomic status, gender, race, and more impact the scope and outcomes of dreaming, and why studying dreams can help shape public policy. Her book, co-authored with Janet M. Ruane, is called “Dreams of a Lifetime: How Who We Are Shapes How We Imagine Our Future.”
