WEBINAR: “Doing the Best I Can”: Fatherhood in the Inner City
June 11, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Professor Edin discusses her most recent work, “Doing the Best I Can: Fatherhood in the Inner City,” just published in May 2013, through which in-depth interviews allow unmarried low-income fathers to tell their side of the story.
The book’s intimate interviews make real the significant obstacles low-income men face at every step in the familial process: from the difficulties of romantic relationships, to decision-making dilemmas at conception, to the often celebratory moment of birth, and, finally, to the hardships that accompany the early years of the child’s life, and beyond.
Professor Edin will discuss the radical redefinition of family life “Doing the Best I Can” reveals, one that has revolutionized the meaning of fatherhood among inner-city men.
Presenter: Dr. Kathryn Edin, Author “Doing the Best I Can: Fatherhood in the Inner City”
