dc.description.abstractDo the mechanisms of modem penal technology specifically target the inmate's identity? Does the act of creative expression help cope with the psychological effects of the modem prison? This paper uses the theories of Irving Goffman, Michel Foucault, and Paulo Freire to explore the impacts of the prison environment on the inmate, and the ability of art to counter-act its negative effects on the self. The prison threatens identity maintenance and manipulates the individuality of the inmate, but creative expression provides opportunities to reassert the definition of the inmate's personality, and ways to break the constant control of the prison.en_US
