States of Captivity Conference Planning Committee

Earlier this fall a group of UNC and Duke anthropology students came together to plan a conference that would address important issues for the state of North Carolina. North Carolina has a long relationship with the military and prison industrial complexes. (Here we can talk about local issues and connecting them to larger themes that we hope are covered at the conference).

    Hello everybody,
    I’m a graduate student at the University of Toronto and I’m very interested in attending this conference. My research loos at “alternative,” indigenous forms of justice and their effects and affects on people and the communities, social cohesion rather than isolation in the punitive judicial system…
    Unfortunately, unless I submit a paper my university can’t provide funds for me to attend.
    I was wondering if there is a way to get funding from your side. I would volunteer to help with the conference.
