Syllabus Description:

Shakespeare Behind Bars.jpg

This course teaches writing in the humanities by exploring how humanistic perspectives and disciplines in the humanities--literature, drama, history, philosophy--and their texts can help us understand and address violence (cultural and structural violence as well as direct violence). We will take mass incarceration and the U.S. prison industrial complex (PIC) as our main object of analysis, and texts will include the documentary "13th,"  Bryan Stevenson's Just Mercy, and Shakespeare Behind Bars, as well as articles by incarcerated and formerly incarcerated writers.
