I am looking forward to an exciting semester of readings, discussion, and documentaries on the prison industrial complex, the economy, and politics. You will note that there are two syllabi on the blog; one is for the evening course in the School of Professional and Continuing Studies, (SPCS), and the other is for the Thursday afternoon class in the School of Arts and Sciences. 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, September 5!
