This chapter presents the state of the art in terms of the major key aspects of the intersections between incarceration and generation(s). In this context, it focuses on how intragenerational and intergenerational relations can operate in confinement and/or how they could impact confinement experiences. Thus, it provides guidance for the setting of the entire volume’s rationale, which is to examine generational relations in incarceration, with chapters focusing particularly on intergenerational continuities in imprisonment, intergenerational justice and citizenship, the impacts of incarceration on multiple generations and within families and media representations of the intergenerationality of incarceration. At the end, the potential of incarceration and generation studies as an independent field of research is discussed.
