Out of Sight, Out of Mind: The Voices of Solitary Confinement
Mentor: Christian Thomas
My project examines the harmful effects of solitary confinement in the United States prison system. I will be writing to incarcerated individuals while analyzing secondary sources such as interviews, newspapers articles, podcasts, novels as well as attending prison-related events to gain knowledge on this matter and understand better this controversial aspect of the American prison system. My research project will result in a non-fiction narrative that shares the voices of the incarcerated and bring awareness to the inhumanity of solitary confinement.
