“Dispossession & Enclosure: Reconsidering Education and Imprisonment” – a conversation with Sabina Vaught & Damien Sojoyner

Please join us on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at 4 PM in the Black Forum (Haines Hall 153), for a conversation with Sabina Vaught & Damien Sojoyner on “Dispossession & Enclosure: Reconsidering Education and Imprisonment.” Sabina Vaught is an associate professor and chair of the Tufts University Department of Education, and Damien Sojoyner is an assistant professor of anthropology at UC Irvine. They will discuss their respective books, Compulsory: Education and the Dispossession of Youth in a Prison School and First Strike: Educational Enclosures in Black Los Angeles. Based on extensive ethnography, these groundbreaking examinations alter previous understandings of the relationship between schooling and the carceral state. The event is free and open to the public.
