Journal Feature: Critical Inquiry on The Wire


“Way Down in the Whole”: Systematic Inequality and The Wire, by Anmol Chaddha and William Julius Wilson, leads off a discussion in the latest issue of Critical Inquiry 38 (Autumn 2011). Patrick Jagoda (Wired), Kenneth W. Warren (Sociology and The Wire), and Linda Williams (Ethnographic Imaginary: The Genesis and Genius of The Wire) provide the critical response. Finally, Chaddha and Wilson have the last word with The Wire’s Impact, A Rejoinder.

Critical Inquiry is available from Penn Library’s e-resources.
