Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology, Colorado State University
Resident Fellowship Year: 2019-2020
Faculty Profile: Josh Sbicca
Research Focus: Josh’s research will study the potential for prisons to advance food justice through gardening and food production in the United States. This will include creating the first-ever complete list of federal, state, and county correctional facilities run by government entities with horticultural initiatives. With this in hand, Sbicca will design and conduct two surveys with corrections officials and incarcerated participants in horticultural initiatives to understand how they envision, experience, and carry out socioecological sustainability in the context of mass incarceration.
