Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Work and Social Capital

New Direction, New Leadership, New Name

Under the leadership of Professor Marion Crain, who concentrates her research in the areas of work and its relationship to gender, race, and class status, the law school’s Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Work and Social Capital will pursue related core themes. 

Professor Marion Crain, the Wiley B. Rutledge Professor of Law, is the author/co-author of leading casebooks in labor and employment law and has published widely on various topics related to the Center’s new focus. 

The Center will explore various themes through upcoming symposia, lectures, and sponsored research projects with a primary focus on work (waged and unwaged) and social capital (the value that lies in networks of relationships).  Professor Crain and other faculty from a variety of interdisciplinary backgrounds will direct these programs.  For more information on the Center, visit the website or contact:
