Instructor: Shaffer, Julie
In this course, we will be considering charity and volunteer work. What are the affects of each of these on both the person giving charity and volunteer work and on the receiver? Should volunteer work be phased out, and the kind of work formerly (and presently) done by volunteers instead be payed work? Where would that pay come from? How does this overlap with the idea of a "safety net?" The course will include examination of particular volunteer and charity entities and a research paper based either on such an examination or on the larger questions we will be addressing in the course as a whole.
