Incarcerated in Iowa Symposium

September 6, 2014 -
10:00 am to 4:30 pm

2nd Floor, University Capitol Centre (located in Old Capitol Mall), Iowa City, Iowa

Our featured speakers include John Baldwin, the Director of the Iowa Department of Corrections, and Carolyn Colvin, Associate Professor in the College of Education. We are honored to have Dr. Linda Snetselaar, Associate Provost of Outreach & Engagement, provide our welcoming address. Our symposium features presentations from engaged scholars across the campus. Together, we have formed the University of Iowa Prison Projects Coalition, and we look forward to moving together in positive directions for the greater good of our community.

The event, and its accompanying organization, the UI Prison Projects Coalition, aims to forward publicly engaged interdisciplinary scholarship and foster communications and dialogue between the DOC /prison community, the university, and local Iowa communities. It is founded and organized by two graduate students, Gemma Goodale-Sussen, Department of English, and Kathrina Litchfield, College of Education - Language, Literacy, and Culture.
