Title

American Mass Incarceration

Abstract

Our presentation focuses on the links between civic engagement, rhetoric, citizenship and incarcerated populations. Drawing from the works of Michelle Alexander, Angela Davis and Douglas Blackman as well as our personal experiences, we assess the state of our current prison system, outline the importance of prison reform and suggest models for improvement. Our personal experiences stem from our time in a “Rhetoric and Incarceration” course at the Washington State Penitentiary and from further findings from our independent study with Heather Hayes.
