Abolition Practicum

Abolition: A Social Justice Practicum with Bernard E. Harcourt and Omavi Shukur

Fall 2021 | Tuesday 4:20-6:20

The syllabus is available here.

This course will explore the social justice road to punitive abolition - to the abolition of capital punishment and the dominant punitive punishment paradigm in the United States. It will investigate how abolition of the death penalty might be achieved in the country, but also what it might mean to imagine abolition in the context of policy, of the prison, and also of punishment more broadly.
