Sociology of Prison Life
SOC 317
Spring 2008 not offered
Crosslisting: AMST 279, FGSS 317

The primary aim of this class is twofold: It will seek to establish a long-term collaboration between the Wesleyan University community and a local Connecticut state prison at the same time as students will learn about prison life. The educational experience for participants in this class will take place both inside and outside the classroom with readings and activities in the prison. Students are expected to be wholly committed to regular attendance not to disappoint prisoner-participants. Students will be involved in regular weekly discussion groups with prisoners. They will also work with prisoners on a writing project.
