Carceral Interstice: Between Prison and Home

Streaming Media

Description

This talk examines Chicago’s Robert Taylor housing projects. In this talk I’ll demonstrate how the project sat at the interstice of home and prison. Carceral power—the practice of policing, surveillance, and contentment that are used to control populations—organized the construction, location, planning, and architecture of the housing project. One of the consequences of this geographic order was the impact it had on the production of subjects.

About the Lecturer: Rashad Shabazz is an Associate Professor, Justice and Social Inquiry in the School of Social Transformation at Arizona State University. He is the author of Spatializing Blackness: Architectures of Confinement and Black Masculinity in Chicago. htpp://www.press.uillinois.edu/books/catalog/52nwq3by9780252039645.html
