The Oral History Master of Arts, Columbia Center for Oral History, the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy, and the Human Rights Institute will host Ayelet Waldman, attorney and author of Red Hook Road and Bad Mother: A Chronicle of Maternal Crimes, Minor Calamities, and Occasional Moments of Grace and Robin Levi, human rights director of the California-based non-profit Justice Now, to discuss their latest book Inside This Place, Not of It: Narratives from Women's Prisons in the United States. The talk is part of the Oral History Seminar Series.

Waldman and Levi will discuss and read from their new book, which is an extraordinary account of women’s lives both inside and out of prison in their own voices and reveals egregious human rights violations within women’s prisons in the United States.

There will also be a presentation from faculty and alumni about the Oral History Master of Arts (OHMA), a multi-disciplinary program that utilizes theoretical approaches across the social sciences and humanities.
