Education, Religion, and Eliminating Prison
A professor of religion and its place in society, Joshua Dubler takes a close look at prisons, their culture, and whether we can eliminate them.
Having studied where American religious history and ethnography intersects with critical theory, and written the book "Down in the Chapel: Religious Life in an American Prison," Carnegie Fellow Joshua Dubler brings a unique perspective to the issue of mass incarceration. He is currently exploring the idea of prison abolition and working on the book project “Break Every Yoke: Religion, Justice, and the End of Mass Incarceration."
"I think mass incarceration is manifestly a moral, social and economic catastrophe. This has been clear to some people for quite some time."
