Join your colleagues for a discussion with author Heather Ann Thompson, Professor of History and Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan. In this luncheon workshop for faculty, Thompson will discuss sharing one’s research with both policymakers and the general public.  The first 50 faculty who register will receive a free copy of Thompson’s most recent book, Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy, which may be picked up in advance at The Wallace Center, 05-1475 (from main entrance, go to far, right corner-look for TWC Operations). 

Blood in the Water has won the Pulitzer, Bancroft, Ridenhour, J. Willard Hurst, and New York City Bar Association Prize, and is being adapted for film. Thompson’s research on the history of policing, mass incarceration, and the current criminal justice system has been published in The New York Times, Newsweek, Time, The Atlantic, Salon, Dissent, NBC, New Labor Forum, The Daily Best, and the Huffington Post, and she served on a National Academy of Sciences blue-ribbon panel that studied the causes and consequences of mass incarceration in the U.S.

Thompson will also give a public lecture on “The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Why It Matters Today” from 4-5:30 pm in Ingle Auditorium, open to the Rochester community.

This event is co-sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts Dean’s office/Department of History, Faculty Career Development in The Wallace Center, and the Office of the Provost.
