June Topic: Status and Privilege
We joke about “keeping up with the Joneses” — but there’s real competition in our society for status and the accompanying privilege. How do we decide what we most value and how do we assign status to what we value? While our country seems to value wealth, there are other forms of status and privilege. What privilege do each of us enjoy? And how does that correspond with our status? This conversation examines our own status and the ways we experience our status in everyday life. From education to wealth, to gender to race, let’s talk about what we have...and what we desire.
