Dan Berger is a historian who studies unfunny things like prisons and sometimes funny things like activism. His work is at the intersection of the not funny and the sometimes funny: he wrote Captive Nation: Black Prison Organizing in the Civil Rights Era, and helped recreate a text adventure computer game about prison, available at the Washington Prison History Project.
