Restorative Justice: Designing Justice, Designing Spaces
ICPR 310, Spring 2013
Wednesdays, from 11:30-5:00pm, including travel time
Environmental design has been a concern of correctional administrators since the opening of the first jails. As prison design has evolved over the centuries, correctional administrators have become increasingly successful in attending to institutional security and the programmatic needs of prisoners, including as they prepare for reentry. This course asks whether tenets and values of restorative justice offer additional insight into the creation of environments that will instill a sense of accountability, transformation and rehabilitation in criminal offenders.
This course takes up this inquiry by bringing together incarcerated students and undergraduate students to explore the potential relationship and impact of restorative justice on prison architecture and design and the influence that such design may have on prisoners and staff alike. The course will include academic reading and discussions in the fields of restorative justice, correctional history, environmental psychology and design, and architecture; real-world environmental analyses; individual and group reflective/experiential activities to explore the personal application of course learning; and creative design work.
This course is not available to first-year students; preference is given to juniors and seniors; sophomores will be considered. Applications must be submitted to by 9:00am, on Monday November 19.
