Welcome to Religion and Incarceration!

At the 2013 meeting of the American Academy of Religion, there was significant interest in religion, power and the ends of mass incarceration.  In paper presentations, panel discussions and roundtable forums, scholars and practitioners came together to explore:

      • the ways that religious ideas and practices enable mass incarceration,
      • the resources religious traditions have to interrogate and oppose mass incarceration, and
      • the partnerships that academics and activists can forge around these issues.

Out of this burgeoning interest, we are working to form a loose network of those interested in these issues, supported in part through this blog where ideas, events, and CFPs can be exchanged.

We invite you to participate, and to invite others you may know with similar interests!
