ICPH's Ethan Sribnick to Discuss History of Social Work at Columbia University Symposium

11/2011

Ethan G. Sribnick, senior research associate at ICPH, will join a panel discussion on the history of social work this Friday, Dec. 2, at a symposium on "Social Forces Revisited" at Columbia University. This event, co-sponsored by the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery and the Columbia Rare Book and Manuscript Library, is being held in conjunction with the exhibit "Social Forces Visualized: Photography and Scientific Charity, 1900-1920."

Dr. Sribnick, who specializes in child welfare and public policy, is currently researching the history of family poverty and homelessness in New York City. He will contribute his insight and expertise as the panel discusses "Progressive-era campaigns in the realm of social welfare, the tensions and common ground among different human service organizations, and the multiple strains of social work in the 20th century."

The panel will be held at 612 Schermerhorn Hall from 1:30-3:00 p.m and is open to the public. For a full summary of the program, visit the gallery's Web site.
