Novel Justice is a book event series hosted by the Wilson Center for Science and Justice. We invite authors to discuss recently published criminal justice books and to engage in Q&A with faculty and students. Dr. Michael Walker is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. His book, Indefinite: Doing Time in Jail, is the first ethnographic study of an American jail in over 30 years and is based on his personal experience while incarcerated. Join us for a conversation and Q&A with Dr. Walker about his findings. Dr. Kevin Dahaghi, Post-doctoral Fellow at the Wilson Center, will moderate. The discussion will be held in person and via Zoom. Lunch will be provided to those attending in person. Registration is required: For more information, please contact Stella Kreilkamp at
