Teaching In or About Prison

For a proposed panel on Teaching In or About Prison, I am seeking
abstracts for papers for the ASA Convention to be held in Oakland,
California (October 12-15, 2006). The ever-increasing U.S. prison
population has made the study of incarceration crucial to American
Studies. Many scholars have chosen to teach about incarceration from
a safe remove, and others have immersed themselves in the prison
experience by teaching prisoners. This panel, consistent with the
conference's "inside/out" theme, will seek to examine this
intersection of perspectives and pedagogies.

Please submit abstracts no later than January 15, 2006 to Quentin
Miller (
