Public programs facilitate dialogue between academics and professionals, informing scholarship and strengthening practice.
Multiple day conferences, year-long colloquia, individual lectures, “conversations” between individuals, hands-on workshops, and Museums at Noon talks featuring our graduate students all contribute to the remarkable richness of MSP offerings.
Video recordings of some MSP lectures are archived for viewing in our Media Gallery.

Spending Some Time on the Inside: Jackson’s Cell Block Seven Prison Museum
October 23, 2015 @ 8:00 am
Amy Reimann (Executive Director, Ella Sharp Museum)
In 2013, the Ella Sharp Museum of Jackson, Michigan, was approached about developing a plan for a museum at an operating penitentiary dedicated to telling the story of the Michigan Department of Corrections. The Cell Block Seven Prison Museum opened for operation in June 2014 and continues to develop with support and direction from the MDOC. We will discuss the initial goals for the museum, what’s been learned over the past year, and where it is headed over the next four.
