Nicole R. Fleetwood, Associate Professor in the Department of American Studies, Rutgers University

Department of Gender and Women's Studies, Center for Race and Gender, Department of African American Studies


In her lecture, Professor Fleetwood explores various aesthetic practices of incarcerated artists and activists to produce art about the U.S. prison regime and how prison shapes life-world possibilities of people impacted. The talk examines how furtive planning and artistic tactics of appropriating items owned by the state and claiming state resources and spaces are maneuvered.
