Beyond Mass Incarceration with Professor Joshua Dubler
Thursdays, September 1, 2022 through September 15, 2022, 3:00–4:15 pm
In Person and Virtual
This class is full, but there is an event coming soon, so be on the lookout!
Thinking in dialogue with traditional Jewish sources and contemporary abolitionist sources, this class offers a history and anatomy of what is commonly called "mass incarceration." What are we talking about when we talk about "mass incarceration?" What other ways might we frame the set of historical and sociological phenomena generally grouped under the banner of "mass incarceration"? How might we work together to de-carcerate our own communities? This class will culminate with an in-person (with a virtual option) program open to all on September 15 - classes on September 1 and September 8 are virtual and are open to Central Members and Neighbors only. Please only register for the date(s) that apply to you. Members and Neighbors - please check your email for registration information.
