Ashley Aubuchon's Paper Accepted for Publication

JSP Student Ashley Aubuchon has had her paper, Rehabilitating Durkheim: Social Solidarity and Rehabilitation in Eastern State Penitentiary, 1829-1850, accepted for publication in the International Journal of Punishment and Sentencing. Ashley's paper seeks to explore the relationship between social solidarity, which Durkheim took to be the central value in punishment, and rehabilitative penology (Durkheim treated such punishment as inherently retributive in nature) by examining the discourses and practices surrounding Philadelphia's influential Eastern State Penitentiary in the early 19th century.
