HIST 27518 - The Making of the Carceral State?

Course Credit: 1
MAKING OF THE CARCERAL STATE The Making of the Carceral State examines the nexus between the formation of prisons, race, and American politics. From the Colonization of North America to Mass Incarceration in our present, the incarceration and the criminalization of people of color have been a normal fixture of US society. Students will delve into new scholarship on criminal justice and carceral studies, as well as write short essays on the scholarship and draft their own research papers as a final project. [C, HSS]
