Call for papers
The imposition of state punishment has historically kindled the public imagination and, as such, the ‘private’ world of the prison has become increasingly exposed through a range of modes. The aim of this conference is to explore the variety of means through which the prison becomes connected with the public and vice versa.
In addition to criminological and historical analysis of the prison, the conference will focus on topics such as representations of prisons in film, TV and literature, the role of journalism in relation to the prison, visual images of and from the prison in art and photography, and the construction and purpose of prison museums and exhibitions.
