Special issue on Peruvian prisons

Thank you to Stephanie Campos for alerting me to the publication of a special issue of Bulletin de l’Institut Francais d’Etudes Andines about imprisonent in Peru.

Stephanie’s own paper (in English) “Extranjeras”: Citizenship and Women Serving Drug Trafficking Sentences in the Santa Monica Prison is featured, as well as work by Camille Boutron on the strategic use of prison space as a referential element in the construction of conflict identities in Peru; by Chloé Constant on the economy of the expanded prison space: a prison in Lima at the heart of multiple informal operations; by Carlos Aguirre on men and prison bars: APRA (Aprista) in the penitentiary, 1932-1945; and by Marie J. Manrique on generating innocence: the creation, use and implications of the identification as “innocent” in the conflict and post-conflict periods in Peru (all in Spanish, with abstracts in English and French).
