Description

Jennifer Thomson, assistant professor of History at Bucknell University, interviews Dave Sprout of the Lewisburg Prison Project. Thomson and Sprout follow up on their March 2015 discussion about the use of force in the Special Management Unit (SMU) of the United States Penitentiary, Lewisburg. Sprout discusses the futility of the program, which involves the lock down of men without any activities or opportunities to engage with the world around them. He describes conditions and raises concern about the psychological impact of punitive social control.
