When Metaphors Are Used to Persuade: Characters, Worldview, and Rationales (RaAM-endorsed Panel at NeMLA, 5-8 March 2020, Boston, Massachusetts, USA)
NeMLA Boston, MA. March 5-8
According to a recent report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, nearly 1.5 million people are incarcerated in the United States. Results from various organizations indicate that people who are incarcerated generally have lower formal education than people who have not been incarcerated. Such findings indicate that regardless of the actual prison sentence a person receives, it becomes a type of life sentence when a lack of education denies full participation in society.
