Hi, my name is Elizabeth, and I am a PhD student. My work focuses on untangling the relations between carceral sites and academia. I question how do universities participate or perpetuate the prison industrial complex? I ask these questions in a Canadian context, looking at Kingston Prisons and Queen's specifically.
