Vitalis Im

PhD Student. Social Work/Anthropology Candidate

Vitalis Im is a doctoral candidate in the School of Social Work and Department of Anthropology. Funded by the Wenner-Gren Foundation, his dissertation research examines the politics of artmaking practices — including music, visual arts, theater and creative writing — in prisons. His scholarship focuses on the tensions inherent to artmaking as technologies of care in prisons, as tools of “resistance,” “healing” and “community building” on the one hand, as well as a means by which exploitation, violence and trauma are legitimated and propagated.
