Design of Prison Spaces: normalisation, humanisation or aspiration?

Lecture by Dominique Moran. Dominique Moran is Reader in Carceral Geography at the University of Birmingham and Chair of the Carceral Geography Working Group of the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers.

Dominique’s research and teaching is in the sub-discipline of carceral geography, a geographical perspective on incarceration. Her research in the UK, Russia and Scandinavia, supported by the ESRC, has contributed to her transdisciplinary work, informed by and extending theoretical developments in geography, criminology and prison sociology, but also interfacing with contemporary debates over hyperincarceration, recidivism and the advance of the punitive state.

She is author of 'Carceral Geography: Spaces and Practices of Incarceration' (2015) and an editor of Historical Geographies of Prisons: Unlocking the Usable Carceral Past (2015), ‘Carceral Spaces: Mobility and Agency in Imprisonment and Migrant Detention’ (2013), and ‘Carceral Spatiality: Dialogues between Geography and Criminology’ (in press). She publishes in leading journals including Progress in Human Geography, Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers and Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, and Theoretical Criminology.
