Summer Institute on Incarceration and the Humanities

A two-year series of institutes and workshops for faculty on the topic of incarceration and the humanities.

Our Summer Institute on Incarceration and the Humanities consists of two intensive summer institutes organized around central themes in the humanities scholarship on incarceration. Through selected readings, guest speaker presentations, and site visits, our faculty fellows will deepen their understanding of the ways in which research in the humanities contributes to knowledge about the history of incarceration in the United States, the goals and justifications of carceral punishment, as well as the connections between rehabilitation, education, and successful reentry. This knowledge will be shared with the community via the scholarly and classroom projects the fellows will create and assess during the institute. These projects will allow us to improve humanities education at LaGuardia Community College and to incorporate a humanist perspective into ongoing projects about incarceration.
