ENGL 203 - W09 Behind Bars: Prison Literature - T - R - - - 0955 - 1135 MHC 204
CRN: 42551 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Lucy A. Saliger The difficult contradictions in our criminal justice system--one that purportedly aims to reduce violence and crime, keep us safe, and promote justice--hide in plain sight. Yet we as a society may or may not know the contradictory realities: the violence and injustices that can occur in our jails and prisons, disparities in legal representation and sentencing, and a host of tangled methods and aims often in conflict with one another. While "crime" shows keep certain stories ever present in our societal imagination, they tend to obscure deeper stories. In this class, we'll attempt to enter into those deeper stories using both media and texts; writers may include Michelle Alexander, Jimmy Santiago Baca, Angela Davis, Johann Hari, Martin Luther King, and Leonard Peltier. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.
