Description - Forced Passages by Dylan Rodriguez
America's prisons have been transformed into primary sites of radical political discourse and resistance as they have become home to a growing number of writers, activists, poets, educators, and other intellectuals who offer radical critiques of American society both within and beyond the prison walls. Dylan Rodriguez argues that the cultural production of such imprisoned intellectuals should be understood as a social and intellectual movement in and of itself, unique in context and substance. He focuses on the conditions under which imprisoned intellectuals live and work, and he explores how incarceration shapes the ways in which insurgent knowledge is created, disseminated, and received.
