This interdisciplinary course is being offered through the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program®, a national educational program that brings together incarcerated (“inside”) students and university (“outside”) students for dialogic, bi-directional learning opportunities. Inside-Out praxis stems from the belief that our society is strengthened when higher education/learning opportunities are widely accessible and when students are able to encounter one another, as equals, across profound social barriers.

In this Inside-Out course, students will explore the explicit and implicit functions of mass incarceration in the United States from varied theoretical and disciplinary perspectives. Through weekly, discussion-based class sessions, we will contemplate the motives and catalysts driving the expansion of the incarcerated population from under 300,000 in the early 1970s to over 2 million today. Simultaneously, we will both study and practice a model of dialogic, liberatory education, as we consider the potentials of critical pedagogy as resistance.
