Daina Stanley aims to contribute to CRESS by partaking in various workshops and seminars, as well as giving a presentation about her innovative approach to penology. Being someone who is committed to the health and well-being of imprisoned communities, Dania says that her “dissertation fieldwork experience crystallized her determination to become an academic researcher working to bring about meaningful change in the lives of marginalized communities.”

Her dissertation project is a novel study that integrates a community-engaged research approach with ethnographic research methods, titled “Caring in Custody: Subjectivity and Personhood in a Men’s Prison Hospice,” and she is sponsored by Dr. Ellen Badone.
