It's that time of the week! Here's another top-notch interview discussing some new work with one of the most important and highly-acclaimed historians working today. On the podcast today we are joined by Heather Ann Thompson, a Professor History and of Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan AND this year's Pitt Professor of American History of Institutions here at the University of Cambridge. Professor Thompson talks to PhD student Richard Saich about her paper 'Lore and Logics: The Liberal State, the Carceral State, and the Limits of Justice and Inequality in Postwar America', its primary points, its potential consequences and relationship with her earlier work, including the Pulitzer and Bancroft prize winning book 'Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy'. The two also discuss, among other things. the relationship between academic scholarship and activism, the particularly prominent role of women in developing this scholarship and social action, and prisons in Finland. If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback, get in touch via @camericanist on Twitter or ltd27@cam.ac.uk. Spread the word, and thanks for listening! See you next week!
