What is the role of prisons in the US? Are they necessary? Are they effective? Are there alternative ways to address harm? In this course, we will explore theories of punishment and theories of redressing harm that do not rely on punishment. We will use the critical tools of philosophy to think about what prisons do, how they shape the world we live in, and what alternatives might be.
