Wikipedia is a great resource for getting general info about something, but because anyone can contribute or change its content it is considered unreliable. College faculty typically do not consider Wikipedia a credible information source.
Instead, use the library's print or electronic encyclopedias, dictionaries, or other reference books to backup the basic information of your research paper. These resources have gone through an editorial process to check for accuracy. To the right and below are some resources that may be of use.
For many of us, the image of prison life has been shaped not by experience but by popular media and literature. From Escape from Alcatraz to John Cheever’s Falconer to Orange Is the New Black, our cultural production for decades has included stories about the world behind high walls and barbed wire, and our understanding of the country’s incarcerated population is influenced by the stories we’ve read or witnessed on screen. In this colloquium we will examine how narrative shapes our perception of lives that play out beyond our view, and how different kinds of storytelling—from journalism, to memoir, to narrative poetry, to fiction, to film and television—communicate ideas about crime and punishment, about guilt and redemption, and about race, class, gender, and sexuality in the context of correctional institutions.
