Poverty exists. That it exists, that it persists, in the 21st century is an obscenity. We want to end this poverty. We want to make poverty history. But we have to ask ourselves: Who is the "we" who sees poverty? When we see poverty, what is that we see? And finally, how do we act upon these ways of seeing?
Based on Prof. Ananya Roy's popular Global Poverty class at the University of California, Berkeley, this video combines critical social theory with improv art and live-action sketch to explore the questions posed above.
The #GlobalPOV Project is a program of the Global Poverty and Practice (GPP) Minor. Based at the Blum Center for Developing Economies, University of California, Berkeley, the GPP Minor creates new ways of thinking about poverty and inequality and undertaking poverty action.
