I’m honored to be speaking this week at an amazing symposium organized by Brady Heiner in the philosophy department at Cal-State Fullerton: Rethinking Mass Incarceration: Gender, Race, and the Prison Industrial Complex. There is an amazing lineup of speakers, including Kimberlé Crenshaw, Alisa Bierria, Susan Burton, Kitty Calavita, Kristie Dotson, Lisa Guenther, Justin Levitt, Sarah Tyson, Johnita Wilbon and Azadeh Zohrabi.
I recently received word that Death and Other Penalties, edited by Geoffrey Adelsberg, Lisa Guenther, and Scott Zeman, is now under contract with Fordham University Press. I am honored to have a chapter included in the volume called, “Death Penalty Abolition in Neoliberal Times,” which critically takes up the failure of Prop. 34 in California, LWOP sentencing, and Foucault’s writings on the death penalty.
