Community Shift Towards Individualism
Public Social Capital is the network of relationships of people that a person knows and the resources they provide for them; as defined by McNamee (2014), “the social capital grapevine is only available in and through relationships and the groups which these relationships occur,” (79). The resource base for higher socioeconomic groups is far wider and deeper than that of those lower socioeconomic origins which creates a gap in information and influence between economic groups. Drawing on social inequality literature and the Facing Project Narratives related to public social capital, this poster will discuss the impact of changing neighborhoods and public social capital in the Dayton area. Understanding how social capital functions to either aid or limit in number of opportunities, resources, and connections in society. Currently and looking into the future, I hope to examine the resources available to connect people and grow in their associational life.
