Incarceration and its Afterlives (virtual)

Though they are often overlooked, the burdens of prison do not fall only on prisoners. The friends, loved ones, and communities of people who are incarcerated—and even those who have served their time and returned home—often find their lives reshaped. Sociologist Reuben Jonathan Miller (Halfway Home: Race, Punishment, and the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration) with Jaime Lowe (Breathing Fire: Female Inmate Firefighters on the Front Lines of California’s Wildfires) and Ashley C. Ford (Somebody’s Daughter) will discuss how assumptions about life inside and outside of prison may change our understanding of freedom. Moderated by The Marshall Project’s Keri Blakinger.
