Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Correspondence, poetry, artwork, and other written documents sent by artists from San Quentin State Prison to Stanford artists, as well as the culmination of these writings into a zine published by the Stanford Renaissance Project in May 2018 called 'Incarceratedly Yours, Issue I'. Collection includes website and zine.
Prison Renaissance at Stanford is supported by a Research Award grant from the Program in Writing and Rhetoric and by the Hume Center for Writing and Speaking. Founded in Fall 2017, the group brings together an interdisciplinary group of approximately 30 Stanford undergraduates, graduate students, staff, and faculty who collaborate with people who are currently incarcerated.
