4/8/2013 - Lecture by Breea Willingham, Dissertation Fellow: ‘It is Like God Stepped Out of the Sky and Shook My Hand’: The Impact of Teaching and Learning in Women’s Prisons.' Information: Thursday April 18 from 4:00-5:00pm in Schumacher 110
Please join the Sociology Department for a lecture by Dissertation Fellow Breea Willingham. This presentation is based on her analyses of the experiences of women who teach in women’s prisons, including their struggle to navigate the politics of teaching inside and transform classrooms into empowering and safe learning spaces. Building on bell hooks’ education as the practice of freedom theory, it is argued that prison classrooms become empowering spaces that allow incarcerated women to develop a consciousness of freedom, and engage in larger social struggles. In addition, the prison instructors become social agents of change working to bridge the gap between the educational and correctional systems.
