MaMSIE (Mapping Maternal Subjectivities, Identities and Ethics) with support from Clinks, present an interdisciplinary panel on the situation of incarcerated mothers in the UK. The panel engages this issue from academic, practitioner, experiential and policy-based perspectives.
The panel will discuss and consider the following broad questions.
What challenges are unique to mothers in prison?
What work is being done to support incarcerated mothers in the UK?
How can the struggles faced by incarcerated mothers be taken up as a significant and under-addressed interdisciplinary feminist issue?
The panel will also address the following specific concerns:
Are mother and baby prison units achieving their proposed goals?
What kinds of prenatal and postnatal care is offered to pregnant women in prison?
What impact does incarcerating mothers have on children and their communities?
Anne Fox, Chief Executive, Clinks will be chairing the event. For more information on speakers, click on the programme tab.
