New Issue of Public-Beyond Mass Incarceration: New Horizons of Liberation and Freedom    

PUBLIC is the Journal of Imagining America, a professional association for public artists and scholars. This latest issue reflects on the efforts of university-community collaborations and shares critical writing and innovative projects that seek to transform the practices of incarceration. You can view it online now at public.imaginingamerica.org.

The contributors to the issue explore the complexities of incarceration from lived experiences as incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, and system impacted people, and scholars, practitioners, and artists whose work addresses our carceral systems. These pedagogical approaches and pedagogies are tied to groundbreaking research initiatives, detailing the potentials and challenges of bringing institutional, geographical, and demographic information to a public audience in an effort to raise questions that are too often not asked.
