Annual two-day residential gatherings bring graduate students from across the nation who are working on issues of incarceration and prison abolition together with faculty from UC Santa Cruz and the UC system in order to workshop dissertations in progress.
As part of the Mellon-funded Visualizing Abolition initiative, the workshops support research which questions the social attachment to prisons by providing opportunities for conversation and collaboration among promising researchers as well as mentorship in the fields of abolition and visual studies.
The next Dissertation Workshop will take place April 29 – May 2, 2024. More information coming up soon.
