As we collectively reckon with mass incarceration, this course will examine prison memoirs as a lens into carceral spaces that keep certain people in and the public out. Pushcart Prize winner, Dr. Ravi Shankar will delve into writing his memoir “Correctional,” then lead a discussion of prison memoirs by Americans of color, including Austin Reed, Assata Shakur, Jimmy Santiago Baca, and more. These texts will be approached as literary artifacts that shed light on the prison industrial complex. Instructor: Ravi Shankar
