Carceral Studies Across the Disciplines: Scholarship at the Nexus of Art & Action

Monday, 4/18/11 8:00-3:30pm
College Arts & Humanities Institute (1211 E. Atwater Ave.)

A day-long workshop and afternoon performance dedicated to apping and supporting the emerging field of critical carceral studies. Ten scholars, activists, and artists from across the nation and across the disciplines will talk about anti-prison scholarship.

Participants have chosen fields defined by discipline or topic and assembled annotated bibliographies. Their prepared comments will engage these works, speaking to larger themes and intellectual conversations. Some will comment on the position of Stuart Hall et. al’s Policing the Crisis as a thread running through the conversations across the chosen texts. Some will address the question of disciplines and possibilities for inter- or anti-disciplinarity.

The three blocs of presentations begin with the organizers; invited participants are grouped to disrupt disciplinary formations. Questions and discussion will follow each bloc of presentations.

The conversation after lunch will engage the relationship of scholarship to activism and the hoped-for interventions of academic research.

This event has been organized by AAADS Assistant Professor Micol Seigel.
