About this episode

In this episode, we speak with Dr. Jane McPherson, Associate Professor in the School of Social Work and Director of Global Engagement at the University of Georgia. She conducts archival research exploring how local Georgia histories of charity and social work entwine with ideologies of white supremacy and capitalism, and asks questions about how these histories still echo in social work practice today. We discuss how Lillian Smith has impacted her social work research and scholarship, the importance of space and community, and about her residences at LES Center.
