Abstract

In a previous article (Reeves 2013b), the author explored how the social life of resident offenders in a Probation Approved Premises (PAP) was structured around social group identities; noting that these groups were reflected in the way space within the institution was used and imbued with meaning. This article develops on these observations from an ethnographic case study of a PAP, highlighting the interplay between residents’ social and place-identities and the fundamental importance that appreciating the meaning of places within the institution has to understanding the cultural experience of being a resident within this criminal justice context.
