2. Desde el GEHPIP (Grupo de Estudios sobre la Historia de la Prisión y las Instituciones Punitivas) queremos anunciar la próxima celebración del II Congreso sobre la Historia de la Prisión y las Instituciones Punitivas, titulado “De los controles disciplinarios a los controles securitarios”, que se llevará a cabo en septiembre de 2019 en Albacete. Este congreso es la continuación del I Congreso Internacional sobre la Historia de la Prisión y las Instituciones Punitivas, celebrado en Ciudad Real en 2013, y el objetivo del mismo es crear un marco en el que se puedan compartir los últimos avances investigadores en torno a la historia de la prisión y las instituciones punitivas, tanto en perspectiva histórica como en relación a la situación más reciente, con los recortes de derechos y garantías que se observan desde principios del siglo XXI. Tomando la historia como eje, se pretende crear un espacio abierto a perspectivas y aproximaciones multidisciplinares.
A través de este correo electrónico se adjunta la primera circular del congreso. Para más información,pueden visitar la web del GEHPIP: https://historiadelaprision.wordpress.com/
