I’m Josefine, I was a student in the M.A. in Liberal Studies program at the CUNY Graduate Center. Queer and Trans Prison Voices: A Podcast Archive on Prison Abolition is my capstone project for the MALS degree requirement. I am extremely grateful for the grants I received from Elizabeth Macaulay, Executive Officer of the M.A. Program in Liberal Studies, and Matt Gold, Director of the M.A. Program in Digital Humanities, in order to make the recordings and their quality possible. I chose to publish my project on CUNY Manifold because the platform is designed to foster collaborative discourse by providing the possibility to extend scholarly projects with interactive features and commenting tools. I imagine the site to function as a potential point of exchange for students, scholars, artists, and activists, offering the possibility of collaboration going forward. At the moment, I am working on expanding the archive and developing it into an independent exhibition project, more information will be posted here soon.
Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the project.
