    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Regardless of whether you share an interest for history or not this class captivates students of all different kinds of academic backgrounds and interests, delving into the global history of incarceration, prison and captivity which finally ends at the present in with the US's system of hyper incarceration and robust prison institutions. Professor Remensnyder is a delight, and is genuinely passionate for the material she is presenting and highly receptive to the different needs of students in her classroom. The class specifically consists of weekly readings that analyze different institutions throughout time and across the world, and the discussions we have bring about excellent analysis and understanding of the material. The papers and personal attention presented by the TAs also help hone your writing skills to improve your own style and help it reach the next level.

    Course highlights:

    The readings for this class were picked with careful consideration and care, each offering its own specific relevance to the course with no material ever feeling like it is meaningless or simple busy work. While the material and awareness of today's incarceration system proved insightful and genuinely interesting, the most practical and invaluable skills I will take away from this class is the improvements I made in my writing. The skills to write concisely without wasting words while specifically addressing the issues at hand prove invaluable in not just a historian's line of work but in the journey of any academic.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the readings, it is absolutely critical to give each reading the attention it deserves as to create the most thought provoking analysis in the weekly writings.
