DESCRIPTION of EVENT:
Inspired by, and featuring contributors to the new anthology Warfare in the American Homeland: Policing and Prison in a Penal Democracy, this panel explores the realities of domestic warfare that enable a penal democracy to thrive. Panelists will consider how surveillance, policing, imprisonment, and public policies serve to enforce the racialized, gendered, and sexualized boundaries of civil society, belonging, and citizenship. Themes that will be explored include Hurricane Katrina, immigration enforcement, the racialized state, and Black women’s resistance.
