A three-week, residential institute for middle and high school teachers on the meanings, purposes, and history of punishment in the United States. 

I am proposing a three-week, in-person, Level II Summer Institute for School Teachers that will examine punishment and its meanings in American society. It will host 25 participants and be particularly relevant to middle school (grades 6-8) and high school educators (grades 9-12). Punishment is an essential object of humanistic inquiry in schools throughout the United States and in history, civics, social studies, and literature courses at the middle and high school level. Teachers regularly use materials about punishment and its purposes. This Institute will address three questions: 1. What is punishment and why do we punish as we do? 2. What can we learn about politics, law, and culture in the United States from an examination of our practices of punishment? 3. What are the limits of punishment? Together with the Visiting Faculty, we will take a fresh look at familiar texts and explore new resources on which participants might draw when they teach about punishment.
