HIST 068 PZ -Prison Autobiography

Institution: Pitzer

Description: It is commonplace that history is written by the victors, that the voices of the marginalized are silenced, and that, in the words of Philip Guedalla, “History repeats itself. Historians repeat each other.” There have been notable attempts, many notable attempts, to represent the unrepresented. (Howard Zinn’s People’s History being among the most obvious of these.) Too often missing, however, are the sources, and so historians struggle about how to give voice to the voiceless. This course, part of a larger project, aims to build from the bottom up. It is an exercise in self-conscious source creation. Assuming that inmates in the California prison system have things to say- and they do- and that their voices rae under-represented- and they are- we plan to group Pitzer students with inmates. The goal: begin crafting untold narratives together, as a collaborative enterprise.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
