O'Grady, Anne; Hamilton, Paul – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2019
In this paper we argue that education--particularly higher education (HE)--has the potential to offer socially, economically and culturally transformative learning opportunities. Yet, for prisoners, the opportunity to engage in HE as active social citizens are often limited. Using a Freirean model of democratic, pedagogic participatory dialogue,…

Gosling, Helena; Burke, Lol – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2019
It is widely accepted that individuals with criminal convictions experience multiple disadvantage and deprivation, and, as a result, are considered least likely to progress to higher education (Unlock, 2018). The risk-adverse nature of higher education application processes further compound such disadvantage, even though there is no evidence to…

Collica-Cox, Kimberly; Furst, Gennifer – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2019
With 68% of prisoners recidivating within a three year period, designing and implementing innovative programming within the corrections setting is a necessity.

Anderson, Annika Yvette; Nava, Noé J.; Cortez, Patricia – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2018
Numerous scholars have noted that the majority of prisoners will be reincarcerated within three years of their release. However, while there has been extensive research on recidivism, much less attention has been paid to the reentry process in the sociological and criminological literature. Given the high rates of former prisoners reentering…

Lavin-Loucks, Danielle; Levan, Kristine M. – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2018
Research on parole in the United States has primarily followed a deterministic approach, favoring an examination of variables contributing to release. However, a great deal of prior research neglects a central aspect of the parole process: mainly the hearing. Adopting an ethnographically informed conversation analytic approach, this article…

Szifris, Kirstine; Fox, Chris; Bradbury, Andrew – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2018
This paper articulates the first 'general theory' of prison education, offering a new insight into the relevance of desistance theory and understanding of prison sociology to the lives of men engaged in education whilst in prison. Using a realist review method (Pawson, 2002b; Wong, 2013a) we develop a rough, initial general theory of prison…

It suggests that situating prison library research within the disciplines of librarianship, education and…
