Perspectives on Poverty: A Socio-drama on Poverty in the North Country
(Dr. MaryJo McNamara, Advisor)
St. Lawrence County is one of the poorest in the state of New York. Using sociology and theatre, this project was meant to examine and expose the emotion and stigma that comes with being beneath the poverty line in the North Country. I used qualitative research by taking and transcribing interviews and I plan to create a script for a one-woman show to be performed in the spring.
