IAS faculty member Dan Berger led a seminar about the criminal justice system for college students at the Mellon Summer Humanities Institute. Held at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, part of the NY Public Library system, the Institute brings together advanced undergraduates in African American Studies interested in pursuing Ph.D.s in the humanities. Over an eight-week period, the students participate in seminars with nationally recognized scholars and pursue individual research at the Schomburg. Berger also contributed an entry to TIME magazine's "25 Moments that Changed America," focused on the 1971 death of George Jackson as prelude to an era of mass incarceration.
