School of Criminal Justice
College of Community and Public Service
This paper investigates the expanding role of the urban jail system and the qualitative change in the conditions of life for those exposed. Examination of the changes in the construction of meaning surrounding local incarceration and its connections and disconnection with the community is investigated in relation to the cultural criminological literature. Arguments positing the unique analytical, cultural, political and practical relationship between the jail and the city are explored.
