On May 7, Heyman Center Public Humanities Fellow Emily Hainze will speak about a curriculum project she’s developing in partnership with the Prison Public Memory Project.

The talk will focus on the process of bringing archival material from the Hudson Training School for Girls (a juvenile prison facility that existed in Hudson, NY from 1904-1975) into a classroom setting. Click here for more information.
