(July 7 - August 13) Set the Prisoners Free: Christianity and Prison Abolition is an online course with PhD candidate Dean Dettloff that invites you to imagine together what a world without prisons and policing might look like, paying close attention to issues made evident by the recent global protests against racially targeted police violence and incarceration. Participants will explore throughout how Christianity both funds the ideology of mass incarceration and a spirit of prison and police abolition, asking what it might mean to proclaim release to the prisoners today. Also eligible for CSTC credit. For details, email Elizabet Aras at academic-registrar@icscanada.edu or visit www.icscanada.edu/summer-online
