ENG 377 - Inside Out Prison Exchange Program

CJ 377  

The Inside Out Prison Exchange Program is a unique and dynamic partnership in which outside students (SJC) and inside students (incarcerated men and women) study as peers behind walls exploring together issues of crime and justice.  Our course “Voices from the Inside” engages students through discussion and written reaction to writings of diverse incarcerated people from different eras, countries, and races.  The social, political and economic contexts of these writers will be examined as well as an analysis of the constraints on the voices of the incarcerated.  Through course activities and a final group project, students are engaged together in a dialogue about justice while bridging the disciplines of Literature and Criminal Justice.

1 semester 3 credits.
