EXPLORING CARCERAL ARCHITECTURE IN THE ADIRONDACKS
Webinar, Thursday, March 3, 6:30 to 8:00 pm
Queensborough Community College Assistant Professor of History Clarence Jefferson Hall, a North Country native, will discuss his recent book exploring the intersection of prisons and the environmental conservation movement in the Adirondack Park.
From the mid-19th century to the present, New York State and federal corrections planners adapted existing Adirondack infrastructure into sites of incarceration, including rehabilitative spaces for tuberculosis cures in Gabriels and Ray Brook. These and other prison complexes, like the historic Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, boast rich and significant architectural legacies. Dr. Hall will speak about the role of architecture and re-use in the overlapping histories of Adirondack prisons, and their impact on North Country communities.
His presentation will also wrap up with a question and answer period.
This virtual event is FREE and open to the public. However, please consider a small suggested donation at the link HERE.
