Hi there. I hope all is well. I am continuing the discussion I began back in 2013. Many things have happened in my life and career during that time. Even more, much has happened in the realm of the American carceral state. Some good, some bad, but mostly the same. I’d like to refer you to the very first post I made for this blog back in 2013 because most of those sentiments are the same. Scholars need to continue uncovering the history of incarceration, peeling away the layers to reveal the core of the matter.
I hope to help peel away those layers by sharing my own research as well as that of my colleagues in history, law, and other disciplines. Enjoy the ride!
