States of Incarceration: Historicizing the Incarceration of Native People in the Upper Midwest

Crosby Seminar Room, 240 Northrop (84 Church St SE)
Free and open to the public

The States of Incarceration project of the Humanities Action Lab challenges students, scholars, and organizers all over the country to explore local histories of mass incarceration in the interest of collectively understanding ho wthe United States became the world's leading incarcerator. The project uses place-based public and digital humanities, history, memory, and storytelling to help shape the current national dialogue on criminal justice.

All are invited to attend this informational and brainstorming session on the States of Incarceration project, led by Dr. Shana Russell, Program Manager of the Humanities Action Lab. University of Minnesota students have already produced content focusing on "Carceral Colonialism" in our region. We invite others to develop ideas for additional programs and projects to launch when the traveling States of Incarceration exhibit visits the Twin Cities later this year (2018). 

Faculty and students interested in American Indian and Indigenous Studies, social justice in an age of mass incarceration, and public and digital humanities are especially encouraged to attend. For more information, contact Kevin Murphy.

This event is produced by the States of Incarceration Research and Creative Collaborative  and cosponsored by the Heritage Studies and Public History Program.
