TLISI 2022: Liberal Education in Carceral Spaces
This item contains media content that is restricted to the Georgetown community.
The PJI team would like to use the TLISI to showcase the new Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree program for incarcerated students at the Patuxent Institution, a prison in Jessup, Maryland. We will describe some of the challenges involved in creating space for liberal arts education within a larger carceral space, share some specific strategies and (success?) stories from the development and launch of the BLA program, and invite other TLISI participants to think with us about innovative ways to expand our work. While one of our primary goals is promotional–to increase awareness and interest in our prison education programs–we believe that inviting participants to reflect on the challenges involved in teaching in carceral settings can push them to think more critically and creatively about their pedagogical practices in general. Specific topics to be determined, but we can cover any/all of the following: curriculum design, including the necessity to create interdisciplinary major programs for our boutique program; best pedagogical practices in carceral spaces; technological constraints, as well as some technological innovations made possible by pandemic conditions; and challenges and opportunities in the development of co- and extracurricular opportunities, as well as possibilities for further integration between the main campus and the Patuxent campus.
