Carceral geographies are concerned with the spaces and practices of detention and imprisonment and frequently use the carceral context as a lens through which to view concepts with wider currency within contemporary and critical human geography. Scholarship within carceral geography has tended to focus on the nature and experience of carceral spaces, the spatial geographies of incarceration, and the relationship between these spaces and practices of imprisonment and a punitive state. Carceral geography has made key contributions to debates within human geography over mobility, liminality, and embodiment, and it has increasingly found a wider audience, with geographical approaches to carceral space being taken up by and developed further within cognate disciplines of criminology and prison sociology.
