Exhibit: Going Upstate

On display at Brockport First Baptist (124 Main Street), April 5-29, 2024.

Hello to the History Department at SUNY Brockport,
I’m reaching out on behalf of Professors Kristin Doughty and Joshua Dubler, associate professors of anthropology and religion, respectively, at the University of Rochester. They have curated a traveling exhibit, Going Upstate, which is currently on display at Brockport First Baptist (124 Main Street).

This multimedia exhibit explores how prisons shape life in our region. It is based on six years of ethnographic research conducted by Doughty and Dubler along with their students. The curators hope that this exhibit, which previously was shown in Rochester, NY (March 2023) and in Auburn, NY (March 2024), will provoke ongoing discussion and community dialogue about the present and futures of incarceration in our region.
We invite anyone in the SUNY Brockport community that is interested to please stop by and view the exhibit, which will be open from April 5-29, 2024. Additionally, please join us on Thursday April 11, 2024, from 6-7:30pm, Brockport residents and First Baptist congregants Kerry and Thomas Gant will moderate a Q&A session with the curators. Food will be served. I have attached both the exhibit poster and the flyer for the speaking event on 4/11.

Please feel free to circulate this invitation widely.
If you have any questions, please be in touch.
Kind regards,
Danielle Genevro (she/her/hers)
