Maja Paderewska Memorial Poverty Project

Just prior to her passing, Maja Paderewska, Anna-Lisa Granbois and Martha Cameron created a multidisciplinary project on poverty.  As a memorial to Maja, Anna-Lisa and Martha have readied the project for publication and we would like to share it with you today.  It is an inquiry project combining the disciplines of Economics and Social Justice, with a strong emphasis on research methodology, critical thinking and academic integrity.  We hope you will agree that this is a fitting tribute to our colleague and friend.
