Criminalizing the Mountain South Persistent Inequalities

The Black Lives Matter uprising and COVID-19 have laid bare the structural racism and political, economic, and health crises that shape American social life

This is the third event in our interdisciplinary roundtable series that aims to explore the politics of race, class, gender, sexuality, and criminalization as historically played out in the Appalachian South, which has been left out of larger discussions about mass incarceration and the carceral state. By bringing together regional and UT scholars, activists, and students, we aim to provide a fuller picture of how residents of the southern mountains find themselves ensnared in the criminal justice system and how criminalization further fragments the basic fabric of our Appalachian communities.

Guest Speakers Include:
-Felicia Arriaga (Assistant Professor of Sociology, Appalachian State University)
-Meghan Conley (Assistant Professor of Practice at the University of Tennessee)
-Jack Norton (Researcher, Vera Institute of Justice)
