Adam Hollowell and the inequality studies minor

A new article from The Chronicle details the growth of the Inequality Studies Minor, a joint collaboration between the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity and the Department of History at Duke University. Notably, the article highlights that since its inception, the minor has seen significant growth, with over 150 Duke students currently enrolled across its three courses.

Director of the minor, Dr. Adam Hollowell, is quoted in the article, stating:

To our knowledge, this is the first minor that has a structured curriculum that involves a specific focus on history and cultivation of undergraduate research in the field of inequality studies.


The Inequality Studies Minor provides students with the opportunity to advance their understanding of the causes and consequences of inequality and pursue research around issues of social equity across a range of social science methods.
