About Rachael Bedard's seminar: The justice-involved population is “graying” in a way that is both unprecedented and challenging to foundational ideas in criminology. This talk will hypothesize that this phenomenon is driven by the existence of a generational cohort of individuals who have been persistently over-incarcerated: the “most incarcerated generation.” The talk will cover what is known about this cohort and why it is urgent that they are offered off-ramps from the criminal legal system in order to age safely and with dignity.
