***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear SOCNETers, I kindly invite you to submit an abstract to the session “Prison Inmates" at the 2018 Sunbelt<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sunbelt.sites.uu.nl_&d=DwMFAw&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=SKGzywd2tLuV9Ia60_v4H6cILdnJPAP7GcPPGcRnY_4&s=rQYEjpVikjuiUPg0B9fdPWYKhVfgS35FIOL6zmAO6fo&e=> in Utrecht. Incarceration represents a fairly extreme shock to one’s social network, straining ties to those outside the prison walls, while creating the opportunity to forge new relationships within prison. A network perspective can illuminate how these worlds are structured, how prisoners respond to incarceration, and the role of others during community reentry. We welcome a wide range of submissions focused on the networks of inmates, including former or future prisoners. Topics may include, but are not limited to: describing and explaining the structure of inmate networks, change in inmate networks over time, ties or communication between prisoners and those in the community, networks of released or soon-to-be-released inmates, and effects of prison network on outcomes in prison and post-release. The submission deadline is February 1, 2018. Feel free to email me with questions. Abstracts for 20-minute paper presentations with up to 500 words can be submitted here<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sunbelt.sites.uu.nl_abstract-2Dsubmission_&d=DwMFAw&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=SKGzywd2tLuV9Ia60_v4H6cILdnJPAP7GcPPGcRnY_4&s=6D9tcCcKr19LKoY4Pfu56tP3ejLPHREAQnVJv598Pmw&e=>. I look forward to your contributions!
