Dr. Jennifer Suchland was recently been named a 2020 Mellon/ACLS Scholars & Society Fellow. Her project, “Abolition Today: An Initiative for Public Reflection on Human Trafficking and Criminal Justice,” explores the connections and tensions between contemporary movements for prison abolition and current movements to abolish human trafficking. She will be working in collaboration with the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati to advance dialogue on mass incarceration, the legacies of chattel slavery, and different calls for abolition today.

Congratulations Dr. Suchland!
