FAIR: The Families and Imprisonment Research Study

 

As we approach the FAIR conference on the 25th of June, you can check out some work recently published by the research team in a new book entitled Prisons, Punishment and the Family: Towards A New Sociology of Punishment? (Edited by Rachel Condry & Peter Scharff Smith). Launched at the American Society of Criminology annual conference in 2018, the book brings together the latest scholarship on families and imprisonment. Our chapter, entitled ‘Prisoners' Families, Penal Power, and the Referred Pains of Imprisonment’ (Lanskey, Lösel, Markson & Souza, 2018), discusses how prison shapes the pains experienced by the families of prisoners both during and after incarceration.
