Abstract

In my Capstone paper in Music, I explore the history, social contexts, and dynamics of music programs in United States prisons. I trace the history of early penal systems in the United States, focusing on the interplay of religious and philosophical ideas and the evolution of prisons, and move toward a discussion of prisons in the past two hundred years, exploring how population, race, gender, and social philosophy play into these penal systems. Throughout, I touch upon the role of music and arts in prisons, considering how creative expression has been regarded by prisoners and by prison administrations. Finally, I discuss music programs in a recent context, while proposing ways for music programs in prisons to be more effective, just, and sustainable.
