CFP: Experiencing Prison

Conference: Experiencing Prison: 8th Global Conference
Place: Lisbon, Portugal
Date: April 4-6, 2017
Submission deadline for abstracts: October 28, 2016
Description: »The upcoming 8th Global Conference will be primarily focused on the prisoner and the impact imprisonment itself and the many shortcomings and civil rights violations that often accompany it have on the lives of the inmates. Living in a total institution can be profoundly traumatic in itself and doing so against one’s will, as a form of punishment is enough to generate powerful, specific emotions and experiences. But when faced with threats to one’s life, health or wellbeing because of issues such as prison overpopulation, physical and sexual violence, abuse of power by prison staff and management, prison riots and gang wars etc., loss of freedom becomes only one part of a more complex and darker story.«
