The Life and the Adventures of a Haunted Convict: Race, Penal Servitude, and Prison Writing before Emancipation
Wednesday, October 26, 5:30 PM
Carceral State Lecture Series: This lecture introduces Austin Reed's recently discovered prison memoir, "The Life and the Adventures of a Haunted Convict" (1858). Born to a free black family in Rochester, Reed spent most of his early life confined to New York's House of Refuge, America's first juvenile reformatory, and Auburn State Prison, the birthplace of industrial penal servitude. His book documents the rise of large-scale imprisonment in the years before the Civil War and invents literary strategies for enduring and refashioning the experience of captivity.
