The Journal of Prisoners on Prisons (JPP), which is housed in the Department of Criminology at the University of Ottawa, has published its latest issue online - Volume 25(1).  Edited by Justin Piché (Associate Professor, Criminology, University of Ottawa) and Kevin Walby (Associate Professor, Criminal Justice, University of Winnipeg), the issue explores the violence and dehabilitating impacts of incarceration through the works of Gregory R. Webb, Tara Perry and Colleen Hackett, Charles N. Diorio, Victor Becerra, and Craig Muhammad.  The issue also features a Response by Vicki Chartrand (Associate Professor, Sociology, Bishop's University), as well as Prisoners' Struggles pieces about the Book Club for Inmates, the Release of Aging People in Prison (RAPP) campaign and Gorilla Convict.

This publication would not be possible without the contributions of editorial assistants like Ashley Chen, Paula Hirshman, Zachary Leheniuk and Gabrielle Pilliat, who are graduate students in our department and volunteer their time to transcribe submissions and correspond with authors.  Members of the journal's Editorial Board, including those teaching in our department - Claire Delisle, Maritza Felices-Luna, Sylvie Frigon, Christine Gervais and Jennifer Kilty - also contribute to the publication through the feedback they provide to authors during the peer-review process.  

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student interested in volunteering with the JPP, please send an email to jpp@uottawa.ca
