our final presentations about what we have been learning!
"the boundaries between incarcerative institutions and the wider society were often remarkably porous....as punishment receded from public view, the distance between everyday life and the world of penalty was filled with mechanisms of observation, communication, and imagination.... [let us] seek to move beyond the oversimple division between 'inside' and 'outside' that shapes much discussion of prison writing" (Buried Lives: Incarcerated in Early America, x, 236, 234).

|English 228: The Rhetorics of Silence
(Anne Dalke, TTh 2:15-3:45)
This English course will consider silence as a rhetorical art
and political act, an imaginative space and expressive power that can serve many functions, including that of opening new possibilities among us. We will share our own experiences of silence, re-thinking them through the lenses of how it is explained in philosophy, enacted in classrooms, and
performed by various genders, cultures and religions.
