|Erica Meiners' New Book: "For the Children?: Protecting Innocence in a Carceral State"|
Erica Meiners, Professor, EICS and Women's & Gender Studies faculty member has published a book that examines the school-to-prison pipeline and the U.S. prison industrial complex. “For the Children? Protecting Innocence in a Carceral State” is published by University of Minnesota Press. Taking an interdisciplinary approach and building from a scholarly and activist platform, “For the Children?” engages fresh questions in the struggle to build sustainable and flourishing worlds without prisons.
If you were walking around campus this Spring, you may have noticed flyers for WGS-150-1 Women’s Self Defense – a one-credit hour course designed to teach and empower women in the art of self-defense.
