About this Event
500 Wilson Blvd Rochester, NY 14627
Curated by Kristin Doughty, an associate professor of anthropology, and Joshua Dubler, an associate professor of religion and director of the Rochester Education Justice Initiative, along with their students, Going Upstate explores how the per capita glut of prisons and jails in the Rochester area affects life in the region. Drawing on five years of research, the exhibit of images, objects, and field notes probes the prison’s footprint in “prison towns” like Auburn and Attica, as well as in Rochester.
Opening reception: March 15, 4 to 7 p.m.
A community conversation hosted by Joan Saab, interim dean of the faculty of Arts, Sciences & Engineering, will occur at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, March 21st.
The exhibit is supported by NSF Gran #2048396 and the Humanities Center at the University.
