Graduate Student Appreciation Week: Elizabeth Wilhelm

Up next in our graduate student spotlights we have Elizabeth Wilhelm! Elizabeth is a 6th year student studying prison policy development within the National Prison Association 1870-1925 using digital text analysis to interrogate how historical discourses shape current logics of the prison system . Scroll through to learn more about Elizabeth and their work.

Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week, taking place April 5–9, is an exciting initiative to raise awareness of the critical role graduate and professional students play in colleges and universities across the country.

This week we will be celebrating our AMS graduate students with individual posts highlighting their contributions and achievements to the program.
