Since the 1840s, the Adirondack environment has proven a pivotal factor in the planning, construction, and operation of prisons in the North Country.  Clarence Jefferson Hall Jr. will analyze this phenomenon with a special focus on the role of incarcerated people of color in shaping—and reshaping—the Adirondack landscape.  This talk is adapted from Hall’s first book, A Prison in the Woods: Environment and Incarceration in New York’s North Country, published by the University of Massachusetts Press in November 2020.  Hall is assistant professor in the Department of History at Queensborough Community College / CUNY and visiting instructor in the Department of Social Science and Cultural Studies at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
