The Critical Prison Studies Caucus is a network of American Studies scholars who oppose the continued centrality of prisons and share a commitment to challenging regimes of criminalization and punishment on local, national, and global scales. We advance a combination of research and practice that connects the production and dissemination of knowledge on incarceration to concrete work for prison industrial complex abolition and radical democracy.
