Join Lisa Biggs and her RCAH 202 students in the RCAH Theater on Thursday, December 11 at 3:30 p.m. for a showcase of the creative scholarship.

RCAH 202 (Section 005) approaches the concepts of criminalization, punishment, justice and law enforcement using ethnographic, historical, and literary sources (plays, novels, short stories, poems etc). These materials, often written from a grassroots perspective, illuminate how U.S. public policies and institutions actually function. What behaviors are criminal(ized)?  How was justice and punishment understood and enacted? How have those practices persisted or changed over time? Where is innovation occurring today, and how might MSU students get involved?
