Reentry to What? Theorizing Prisoner Reentry in the Jobless Future

The broad sociological factors impacting people returning to society from incarceration have thus far been largely ignored in the reentry research field. This article analyzes three different theoretical approaches to reentry (neoliberal punishment, peculiar institution or transcarceral, and criminological scientism) to argue that the long-neglected needs of marginalized populations in the United States should become a more central focus of prisoner reentry research.
