Public Lecture on Prison Ethics

Location: STB 108

Dr. Joshua Miller, Director of Education at Georgetown University's Prison and Justice Initiative will ask:
Should We Turn Prisons into Colleges?
Date: Thursday, May 3, 2018
Time: 5pm-6:30pm
Location: STB 108

Many reformers--most recently Elizabeth Hinton in the New York Times--argue that prisons must include a substantial educational element in order to rehabilitate those we incarcerate. In this paper, I explore the underlying data on mass incarceration and the effects of education on recidivism alongside a conceptual exploration of theories of punishment. I will argue that college programs in prisons and jails present serious challenges to both our thinking about incarceration and our justifications and explanations for the value of higher education.

This event is open to the public!

This event is sponsored by the Departments of Philosophy, Sociology, the Pre-Law Certificate Program, the Hawai╩╗i Island Philosophy Club and SAC
