Blog #1: Inquiry project
1. State your inquiry question.
My inquiry question for this semester is: How does the prison industrial complex affect marginalized groups?
2. Explain why this is a question of interest for you.
This semester I chose the question How does the prison industrial complex affect marginalized groups as the prison industrial complex is something that I would like to understand more. I am interested in how prisons are connected to capitalism, and the history of the prison industrial complex. I would like to learn and find out more on how the prison industrial complex is linked to the mass incarceration of marginalized groups such as people of color and disabled peoples, notably black and indigenous peoples. I am also interested to see how the term prison industrial complex is relevant to not only the “united states”, but also how/if the term is relevant here in so called Canada.
