The Digital Carceral Body: The Making of Recidivist Women in Texas

Mass incarceration is often framed as a social and political issue, but is less often acknowledged to be a data or epistemological/ knowledge problem. This project sets out to understand the history of risk projections that determine both the time and conditions of release from jails or prisons in Texas. This history will form part of the digital archive that will also include works of art, writing, and interviews responding to this history from women living at Angela House, a non-profit that assists formerly incarcerated women with substance use disorders.
