Berlind Symposium, Lecture: Food Access and Incarceration
Maier Museum of Art

Berlind Symposium, Lecture: Food Access and Incarceration - by J. Nikol Jackson-Beckham, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies. For several years, J. Nikol Jackson-Beckham has helped inmates at the Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women earn their associate’s degrees. Combining this unique teaching experience with her intellectual work in critical food studies, Jackson-Beckham conducts research in hope of influencing policy pertaining to correctional food systems. In the summer of 2016, Jackson-Beckham and Randolph students, Jan Cornell ’18 and Alexandra Wieczorek ’19, partnered on the Summer Research project “Correctional Food Deserts: Defining the Problem and Designing Interventions.” Using U.S. Census records, market basket research, and interviews, they investigated possible correlations between mass incarceration, poverty, and food deserts (urban areas with limited access to affordable, quality foods). Jackson-Beckham earned a bachelor’s in English from Virginia Tech and bachelor of fine arts in visual communication from American Intercontinental University. She received her master’s in communication studies from San Diego State University and Ph.D. in communication studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Reception to follow.
