Adam Reich

Associate Professor of Sociology, Columbia University

Reich will explore the changing prevalence and organization of work among incarcerated people during the era of mass incarceration from the 1970s to the present. He will analyze data from the Survey of Inmates in State Correctional Facilities and in-depth interviews with state correctional administrators and formerly incarcerated people. He will explain the decline of prison labor since 1970 and variation in how prison labor has been and continues to be understood and organized across the states.
