Session 12(October 2013)
Audio from the session: Gender and Prisons.
Prisons have long been used as a way to confine, control and monitor populations. Despite clear evidence that imprisonment is experienced at a far greater rate by groups who are already disadvantaged in society, prisons tend to be ignored as sites of social struggle and resistance. This session aims to examine the dynamics of prisons in New Zealand, with a particular focus on queer and trans* experiences.
