This interdisciplinary research project investigates the history of carceral geography in El Paso, TX through archival research and embodied mapping, leading to the creation of audio walking guides accessible to the public. Carceral geography is a lens on architectures and social relationships that are disappeared or displaced within neoliberal systems of incarceration, raising the question— how can we see that which is disappeared? This project responds with archival research paired with a somatic approach— walking landscapes and recording lived observations.

This event will convene student and faculty fellows in a conversation introducing the research questions and approaches of our project, with reference to a wide range of artists and thinkers informing the creation of our Sound Walks in El Paso.

This project is funded by The Mellon Humanities Collaborative at El Paso Community College- The University of Texas at El Paso, 2021-2022.
