Helen Gartner Hammer Scholar-in-Residence Ofra Greenberg's Lecture

"Women's Time: Being a Women in Prison in Israel"

The life cycle of a woman is partly determined by her biological traits. These have social implications that are manifested in the prison. Motherhood is the most visible and central of characteristics in the prison. Israeli-Jewish culture intensifies the expression of this dimension and brings staff and inmates close together.
This research is based on re-analysis of field notes taken forty years ago from a different theoretical perspective.
