New Proposed Sessions
Proposed Session: Race and Incarceration
Organizer: Christine Winter
A first interest session will be open to interested scholars. The session is interdisciplinary, ranging for example from anthropology to history, and sociology. Themes can be the role of race constructions in the formation of incarceration institutions, such as prisons, refugee camps, or mental institutions; incarceration rates and race perceptions; cultural practises within prisons and
racial belongings; experiences of incarcerations and their wider impact on racialised communities. The session will focus on Pacific Islanders in the pacific and significant diasporas, especially the USA, Australia and New Zealand. Contributions analysing additional racialised groups, individuals and experiences are also welcome.
