Jamila Michener will discuss her new book Fragmented Democracy. Michener describes how federalism transforms Medicaid beneficiaries' interpretations of government and structures their participation in politics. This book examines American democracy from the vantage point(s) of those who are living in or near poverty, (disproportionately) black or Latino, and reliant on a federated government for vital resources.
Jamila Michener is assistant professor of Government at Cornell University and a faculty affiliate of the Center for the Study of Inequality, the American Studies Program, and the Africana Studies Department. She studies poverty, racial inequality, politics, and public policy in the United States.
