"We Had to Take Things Into Our Own Hands"

Earlier this year I sat down with Alexandra Adams and Lauren Barbato for a lively exchange about university-based rank-and-file unionism and their founding of the Rutgers Rank-and-File Caucus. This interview, which appeared in a limited-run newsprint version of The File,  is now available to read online alongside lots of other swell articles at The File's new website.

Jailhouse Schlock

My scholarship was cited in two recent articles about the new jails planned for New York City: Michael Kimmelman's "After Rikers Island Closes, What Will Jail Look Like?" in The New York Times, and Tiera Rainey's "Mainstream Reform Efforts are Simply Evolving, Not Ending, Mass Incarceration," written for the American Friends Service Committee, Arizona Office. The critique of "justice hubs" Zhandarka Kurti and I wrote also made an appearance on the Antifada episode "Abolish Justice Hubs," where the gang is joined by No New Jails activist and my friend Nadja Eisenberg-Guyot.
