On February 24, 2020, I participated in a Public Scholars Project webinar on “Religious Studies and Mass Incarceration: Tips for Sharing Scholarship with the Public.”

On May 8, 2020, I was part of “Past as Prologue: Storytelling about Resistance to the Brutality of Incarceration,” a national webinar on the current horrific conditions that incarcerated people are enduring under the COVID-19 pandemic and how they are resisting this violence, as well as historical examples of prisoner resistance to the violent conditions of confinement. This conversation was organized and moderated by Mariame Kaba, and co-sponsored by Survived and Punished NY and the Barnard Center for Research on Women (BCRW).
