Abstract

The 50th anniversary of the foundation of The Open University (OU) is a landmark worth remembering and celebrating, even as it passes. In this article I briefly review the establishment of The OU in 1969 and then its work with men and women in prison. This draws from a collection of essays, Degrees of Freedom (Earle and Mehigan 2019), published at the end of 2019 to mark the 50th anniversary and raise the profile of our work with prisoners.
