Philanthropy and the Social Sciences

PHST 210: Assessing the Social Impacts of Doing Good

This course introduces the analytical approaches that the social sciences bring to the study of philanthropy. The course surveys the role of philanthropy in promoting social justice and civil society; intersections of philanthropy with important issues in the social sciences, such as race, class, gender, religion, and youth; reviews organizational theories; and provides examples of philanthropy analytics, both traditional modes of data collection and contemporary data science.

 

Within this context, the course will survey the history of the wealthy class contributing to public goods, gender in philanthropy, an overview of culture, and race, ethnicity as it relates to philanthropy, and the ways that philanthropy intersects with religion and youth issues, especially as related to inequality. Subsequently, the course will summarize key organizational theories, empirical approaches, and the role of digitization and data science in affecting contemporary philanthropy analytics.
