About the Talk

The growth of the carceral world / state has been linked to a multitude of deleterious effects across a wide range of life's domains. Previous research has demonstrated that incarceration has a deleterious effect on life expectancy, thus bringing prisoners closer to death; however, the injurious consequences of incarceration extend far beyond penal walls and truncate prisoners and former prisoners' civil and social lives as well as their biological (physical whatever). In this talk, I argue the carceral world / state taxes social, civil, and biological life and that, for many, incarceration means a social and civil (if not biological) death.
