Kathy Newman Blogs About Bosses

Associate Professor of English Kathy Newman regularly blogs for the Center for Working-Class Studies at Youngstown State University. In her latest post, "Jerk in Charge," she explored what bosses mean to society, how that meaning has changed over time, and how different classes of workers relate to bosses. A mass and pop culture expert, Newman often uses the blog as a means of expressing her views on social class and entertainment. Her new post might be of particular interest to those who have seen the motion picture Horrible Bosses, which opened on Friday, July 8.
