An essay by Doran Larson, the Walcott-Bartlett Chair of Ethics and Christian Evidences and professor of literature and creative writing, appears in the November/December issue of Corrections Today.
“The Echoing Silence: Who Will Speak for Prison Workers?” focuses on the history of the American Prison Writing Archive, the goal of assembling first-person accounts of incarceration by both prisoners and prison workers, and some of the issues the program faces.
Corrections Today is the professional membership publication of the American Corrections Association.
In November, Larson presented a paper titled “Witness in the Era of Mass Incarceration” at the annual meeting of the American Studies Association. The theme of the conference, which took place in Chicago, was “Pedagogies of Dissent.”
