I am looking forward to an exciting semester of readings, discussion, and documentaries on the prison industrial complex, the economy, and politics. You have an assignment for our first day of class. It is under “Readings”. We are fortunate to tackle this subject in the rich context of protests around police misconduct and more broadly, the criminal justice system. I am Prof. Andrea Y. Simpson, but I have shortened that moniker to “ProfSi”–it’s quicker to type and easy to say–“Prof-See”. Some of you have already taken a course from me, which pleases me greatly since I will get to know you better.
Take care and see you on Wednesday, January 17!
