Decarcerating Disability: Deinstitutionalization & Prison Abolition

Critical Gender Studies, in collaboration with the Digital Gym, is excited to kick off winter quarter with another "Materializing Abolition: Queer and Feminist Strategies" event! Join us as we host Prof. Liat Ben-Moshe for an event celebrating her recent book publication, Decarcerating Disability: Deinstitutionalization and Prison AbolitionThe event will be an informal conversation on the connections between incarceration, abolition, and disability justice. How does the deinstitutionalization of psychiatric hospitals offer key insights to an anticarceral future? How do carceral logics operate across different institutions? And why is disability justice crucial to the work of abolition? This event will be on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 5 pm PST. We look forward to seeing you there and learning together!
