Discipline & Punish: The Birth of the Prison

Lunghezza: 8 minuti
The evolution of crime and punishment, and what it reveals about society and power.

Criminal justice has come a long way since the days of guillotines and drawing and quartering; nevertheless, modern justice systems still employ their own methods of bodily subjugation and collective control. In this Snapshot, you will learn about the history of criminal justice across Western society, how today’s justice systems utilize discipline as a means of inmate control, and how disciplinary power is at work, not only in prisons, but in the mundane happenings of society.
