Law, Justice, and Abolition
This course explores theoretical and practical approaches to examining the function of law in society, the degree to which justice is served in society, and how abolitionist theory and practice can be used as an active process for abolishing judicial and carceral systems of systemic oppression. Students examine how the law has functioned as a tool of colonial oppression against Indigenous and Black peoples by analyzing the structural materiality of the Prison Industrial Complex.
