INCARCERATION’S WITNESSES: AMERICAN PRISON WRITING
Launches on March 2nd, 2015

"Incarceration’s Witnesses: American Prison Writing” is a massive, open, on-line course (or MOOC) on the edX platform.  It is entirely free and launches on March 2nd, 2015.

“Incarceration’s Witnesses” offers a history of the American prison through the writing produced by incarcerated people.  Its premise is that no one has ever understood the prison as well as imprisoned people themselves.  No one but the imprisoned writer can tell us the full human cost of the current legal order.  This is a literature that reaches from the gallows confessions of the seventeenth and eighteenth century, to the latest broadcast from Mumia Abu-Jamal.  Reading and understanding this work is essential to a full understanding of the American experiment itself.

“Incarceration’s Witnesses” includes videos, text, maps, interviews, on-line discussion groups, and links to primary and secondary sources in the history of prisoner writing and prisons.  

There are no costs to participants.  There is simply an opportunity to join others as we follow what incarcerated people have written throughout the troubling history of the prison in the U.S.

Thanks in advance for your time and attention.  I hope you join us in March.

1ST PAN-AMERICAN INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE
10-13 March
Buenos Aires Argentina

THE INTERNATIONAL INTER-DISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON CRIME SCENE: OFFENDER, VICTIM AND  BYSTANDER.

The conference will be held at the Ariel University, Israel on March, 11-12, 2015.

Contemporary victimology and criminology recognize that an understanding of the factors that facilitate and contribute to occurrence of crimes requires a comprehensive approach that includes the victim, the offender , and the bystander. Therefore in addition to addressing issues concerning offenders and victims, this conference aims to shed some light on the role of bystander in facilitation and prevention of crimes, acts of violence, harassment and bullying. The conference also aims to explore the issue of bystander blaming. This conference seeks for papers pursuing empirical, normative, comparative and theoretical approaches. We welcome contributions from law and social science, including criminology, victimology, psychology, anthropology, philosophy, sociology and history.

The Department of Criminology at the Ariel University calls for papers.

ASIAN ASSOCIATION FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE RESEARCH,
UNIVERSITY OF MACAU, MACAU FOUNDATION, ETC.
November 8 - 10, 2015
University of Macau, Macao, China

Purpose and Programs

Prevention and treatment of drug abuse are common problems faced by most countries in Asia and nearly all other societies in the world. The multifaceted problems required multiple approaches. Government agencies, non-governmental organizations, practitioners and academic scholars across the region have developed many social and psychological programs to combat drug abuse. Criminal justice agencies have also played an important role in preventing and controlling drug use and abuse. Despite these efforts, significant challenges remain. The main purpose of this conference is to bring together government officials and policymakers, leading scholars, substance abuse treatment providers, and criminal justice practitioners from Asian countries to discuss opportunities, strategies, and challenges in building effective substance abuse prevention and treatment programs. While it focuses on Asia, the conference also aims at facilitating more broadly based international collaboration. Much can be learned from the insights and experiences of scholars and professionals who are involved in substance abuse research and programs elsewhere in the world and from scientific evidence accumulated through research and program evaluations. Therefore, we will also welcome participants from other parts of the world who will bring international or comparative perspectives on substance abuse prevention and treatment or who will share information about effective criminal justice responses to drug abuse in non-Asian countries.

Themes

The conference will focus on the following themes:
1. Types, distributions, and trends of substance abuse
2. Causes and consequences of substance abuse
3. Prevention and treatment of substance abuse
4. Correlates of substance abuse and crime
5. Drugs and the criminal justice system
6. Anti-drug Cooperation among Asian countries
7. Scientific advancement and methodology
