In the era of increasing conversation around the issue of mass incarceration in the U.S., the male prison experience dominates the academic, conversational, and media landscapes. While is it still the case that significantly more men than women are in prison, the damaging effects of mass incarceration on women in our society is often overlooked. The lack of attention to the female experience is somewhat surprising given that from 1980 to 2014, the rate of growth for female imprisonment outpaced men by more than 50%. Consequently, women now comprise a larger proportion of the prison population than ever before. In fact, from 1980 to 2014, the number of incarcerated women in the U.S. increased by more than 700%. Given these alarming trends, any informed discussion about the personal and social impact of mass incarceration must include the female experience. Thus, please join us for an in-depth conversation with a panel of former female offenders as they discuss the unique obstacles faced by women in the criminal justice system.
Facilitated by Dr. Rosevelt Noble.
Join us for the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibition, which makes a beautiful case for the importance of data visualization.
The Places & Spaces exhibition showcases the visualization of complex data in innovative and beautiful formats, using groundbreaking methods for making sense of large streams of data. Each year new visualizations are added, culled from international and interdisciplinary submissions. Four new macroscopes have been chosen to travel with the exhibition, and will make their debut at Vanderbilt University.
These four macroscopes use data that varies tremendously in terms of subject matter and method of collection: city smells found on social media, a library collection mapped in time and space, institutional partnerships revealed through publications, and ship locations tracked by satellite. However, they all present data visually to make new perspectives possible.
The macroscopes will join the 100 maps of science, sculpture, and hands on activities that currently comprise the exhibition. The exhibition will be on display in the Central Library, Sarratt Student Center, Rand Hall, and the Wond'ry.
