Wednesday Lunch Hour - How is Rochester a Prison Town?

Wednesday, March 6, 2019
Noon - 12:50 pm
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

Kristin Doughty, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Susan B. Anthony for Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies and Joshua Dubler, Assistant Professor of Religion are members of the Rochester Decarceration Research Initiative. In the fall, in conjunction with RDRI's "How is Rochester a Prison Town?" project, they co-taught an undergraduate ethnography lab, "Cultural Politics of Prison Towns" in which teams of students researched the political, social, and economic lives of Albion, Attica, and Auburn in an effort to understand how the presence of prisons in these towns shapes everyday life. In their lunch talk, they will discuss the ongoing research and their preliminary findings.

A light lunch of quiche and salad will be served. Food will be available at 11:45 am. The program will begin promptly at noon.

No need to RSVP. For any accommodation needs please contact Mary Judge at (585) 275-2454 or email at
