Call for Papers on the Histories and Philosophies of Carceral Education

This proposed edited collection is therefore based around the history and philosophy of prison education. Owing to the dearth of literature in this area, contributions focused on Australasia are especially welcome, but so too are contributions from a wider sphere. Proposals can address different types of education, from the delivery of actual academic content in prison to programs that address rehabilitation and programs for areas such as sex offences. Contributions from academics and from practitioners directly engaged in prison education are equally welcome.

Abstracts of 250-300 words are welcome by April 21st (email to explaining the aim, focus and methods of the proposed chapter. They are aiming for chapters of 6000 words and are in preliminary talks with a UK-based publisher.
