after grappling with newblogger on the publiccriminology.org site for a couple days, michelle and i decided to bag it and launch pubcrim II. there's no archive yet, but she just put up a cool post on her new inside-out course at oregon state (oregon state pen, that is, as well as oregon state u).
would you teach any differently if you did your next course in prison? if you were teaching a class of 50% prisoners and 50% university students? i've long wanted to run an inside-out course, but never put in the required training (now that i think about it, this is precisely the same reason i haven't run an ironman triathlon. well, that and the swimming). michelle promises to post updates on her experiences with the course at pubcrim II, and i'll keep posting my sociological criminology stuff there as well.*
