A talk with Perry Zurn, Visiting Assistant Professor of Applied Ethics

Cece McDonald and others have said that no prison is beneficial—not a men’s prison, a women’s prison, a trans prison, “not even a unicorn prison.” This workshop investigates the history of gender segregation in prisons, the typical treatment of trans and gender non-conforming prisoners, and recent initiatives to establish LGBT wings, centers, jails, and prisons. Ultimately, it explores the weaponization of gender as a means of social control and isolation. This event is hosted by the Five College Queer Gender and Sexuality Conference.
