PREREQUISITE: This book dialogue is for anyone working with our students in incarcerated settings or who may have in interest about equity and the criminal justice system in the United States.

Critical Perspectives on Teaching in Prisons: Emotional Boundaries and Trauma-Informed Pedagogy This series of three dialogues will explore readings in the new book "Critical Perspectives on Teaching in Prisons." Once a month, participants will be asked to read 2 to 3 essays in the book and they will be invited to participate in a deep dialogue about what it means to be a socially justice minded educator in what some would say is an unjust system. Topics explored will include issues of systemic racism and the prison system in the United States, the construct of "time" and its meaning to those who are on the "inside", the importance of hope and resilience, and finally, an exploration of working with students through trauma informed pedagogy. Although this dialogue is specific to teaching those living in incarcerated settings, this dialogue also covers issues of systemic racism and the importance of pedagogical mindfulness in working with students from marginalized communities.
