To explore that idea further, I read ?Common Sense and the Collaborative Production of Class? by Celine-Marie Pascale. When I walked into Hulick's office and asked how her job had changed in the wake of the economic downturn, she told me that it really hadn't. Galesburg's social programs had always been drastically underfunded, and her office had always served extremely low-income people. Pascale opens her study by discussing the fact that although economic inequality is one of the most prevalent sites of difference in America, it is also one of the least visible, something that Hulick emphasized during our interview. Pascale's study illuminates the fact that common sense assumptions like the one I'd made pervade academia as well. As Pascale put it, ?Research paradigms are historically produced social formations; it is important that scholars not reify notions of class or the analytical constructs used for social research on class.? Since we rely on scholars for data upon which to base policy, it is vitally important that those scholars approach the issue with a fresh look.
