Dr. Daniel Moshenberg discusses the wide-ranging impact of food on prisoners in the U.S. prison system. Dr. Moshenberg has worked with women in community-based organizations and social movements which are majority women but are not (yet) identified as women’s organizations or movements. That work has been under the aegis of women’s literacy development and promotion. Most of his hands-on field work has been based in the United States, primarily among immigrant women, and in South Africa. Daniel Moshenberg researches women’s involvement in mass incarceration and in mass household-based labor, largely in the context of global political economies. He is one of the conveners of Women In and Beyond the Global, an open access feminist project.
