Nancy Rabinowitz Co-Edits Volume on Classics in Prisons


Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz, professor of comparative literature and creative writing emerita, is the co-editor of a book titled Classics and Prison Education in the US. Recently published by Routledge, the volume focuses on teaching classics in a prison setting and was co-edited with Emilio Capettini of the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The book features articles that examine how incarcerated adults read and discuss classical texts and the best pedagogical practices for teaching within a prison.

At a recent virtual launch of Rabinowitz’s book, Rhodessa Jones, director of the Medea Project: Theatre for Incarcerated Women/HIV Circle, presented “Whose Classics?” She discussed her work in prisons and how she uses ancient myth with incarcerated women.
