Emotions are no longer banished to the margins of prisons research, however they still remain notably underexplored. In this lecture, I summarise the key findings from my doctoral research on emotions in prison. I argue that emotions are a powerful lens to view the prison world. To support this claim, I explore the different strategies of managing emotions, using a new framework based on metaphors of water. How prisoners express and suppress particular emotions provides new insights on ‘old’ discussions of power, control and agency in prison settings.

Wine and nibbles will be available after the talk.
