Natalia Sarkisian

Boston College

Sarkisian will write a book examining how social class and race shape kin support in the United States. Sarkisian will focus on whether poverty boosts or weakens kin ties by examining three central questions: How do economic resources affect individuals’ ties to extended families? What mechanisms link economic disadvantage to kin support? Does giving and receiving kin support help or hinder economic mobility?
