The University of Vermont Humanities Center and the UVM Liberal Arts in Prison Program (LAPP) present Christina Mengert, assistant director of College Programs for the Bard Prison Initiatives on October 26, 2017 at 4:30 p.m. in the Mildred Livak Ballroom, Dudley H. Davis Center.
Mengert leads us in a discussion about the unique opportunities and challenges of teaching the humanities behind prison walls. She is the site director at Woodbourne Correctional Facility in Woodbourne, N.Y., and has taught literature and writing for the Bard Prison Initiative since 2009.
The UVM Liberal Arts in Prison Program (LAPP), administered by the university’s College of Arts and Sciences, joined the Consortium of the Liberal Arts in Prison program which originated at Bard College. Earlier this year, UVM became the first public institution, and the first land grant university, to join the consortium.
