Serendip Studio Mixing

Women in Walled Communities "mixes" literary, educational and sociological perspectives, in order to explore constraints and agency in the institutional settings of women's colleges and prisons.

How are individual actors silenced? How do they chose and use silence? How do they come to voice? What are their visions? And what are the intersections among silence, voice and vision, inside and outside the porous boundaries between institutions and the wider society?
