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.
