Prisons and Capital Punishment Workshop: The Scholar & Feminist 2012

Prisoners are often subject to extreme vulnerability—through loss of access to rights granted others, by being placed in harsh and invasive conditions, and in facing the possibility of state-sanctioned violence. This workshop seeks to uncover the challenges and strategies involved in working on prisons and capital punishment along with the broader implications of a vulnerability approach for systems of justice.

This workshop, led by Cathleen Price (Equal Justice Initiative) and Shari Silberstein (Executive Director of Equal Justice USA), was part of The Scholar and Feminist Conference 2012, “Vulnerability: The Human and the Humanities.”
