Prisoner Reentry as a Social Institution and the Making Up of the “Ex-offender”

For The Criminalized Poor, U.S. Crime Control Policies Have Produced a New Form of Citizenship


Neil A. Weiner Research Speaker Series at the Vera Institute of Justice.

In the era of mass incarceration, prisoner reentry has become an important social institution in the life [and] worlds’ of the urban poor.

This is especially the case for poor black men and women, Latinos, and increasingly poor white men.

Yet we know little about the everyday experience of prisoner reentry or the broader implications of our current crime control strategies in shaping the experiences, interactions, and daily routines of urban life.

Drawing from ethnographic research on the reentry experience in several large cities, this presentation reveals how U.S. crime control policies have produced a new form of citizenship for the criminalized poor, changing the nature of American public and private life and transforming the shape of American democracy.Reuben Jonathan Miller, PhD Assistant Professor The University of Chicago
