Event description

Description

Prisoners' Education Trust and PLAN (Prisoner Learner Academic Network) are proud to invite you to our inaugral event at the University of Westminster on 25th June, for an afternoon exploring challenging narratives in prison education theory.

The day will consist of short, 'key point' presentations by speakers including Anne Pike (Open University), Sarah Galloway (University of Stirling), Karen Graham (Manchester Metropolitan University), Cormac Behan (University of Sheffield), Henry Smithers (HMP Feltham) - designed to provoke debate and discussion around the following three themes:

  • What does the wider involvement of universities mean for discussion on the role and purpose of prison education?

  • What role should 'transformation' play in prison education pedagogy?

  • Where should we position 'power' and 'identity' in prison education theory?

There will be plenty of space to connect with other prison researchers over a reception and breaks for refreshments.

We welcome participation in these conversations from all attendees and see it as vital that a multitude of voices and perspectives are represented. Some funding is available to contribute towards travel for research students, ECRs, people who have been in prison, and anyone who would otherwise be unable to attend.

We hope to see you there!

Rosie Reynolds (Prisoners' Education Trust), Morwenna Bennallick (University of Westminster), Kirstine Szifris (Manchester Metropolitan University).

If you have any questions about the event please contact Rosie Reynolds (PLAN lead at Prisoner's Education Trust) or Morwenna Bennallick (PLAN Chair).
