CFP: The Criminalization of Race in History and Global Societies: Social Activism and Equal Justice

Conference: Fourth Biennial Interdisciplinary International Conference on Race
Place: West Long Branch, NJ
Date: April 16-18, 2015
Submission deadline for abstracts: November 1, 2014
Description: »This conference asks scholars from multiple disciplinary perspectives to explore race and criminal justice throughout history and across global societies with an emphasis on social activism and equal justice. How have scholars and activists in general responded to the social crisis of what Michel Foucault defined as the “carceral” state? What about prison education programs and challenges to such initiatives? What about the connections between race, gender, and class in the emergence of mass incarceration? How have the rates of incarceration varied over time and space? What are some of the connections between the criminalization of race, rates of incarceration, and the prison industrial complex in global societies?«
