Migration, Race, and the Carceral State
1 March 2012
CUNY Graduate Center, NYC
Co-sponsored by the POLICED Seminar

The post 9/11 era has drawn increased attention to the ways that immigrant communities are policed, surveilled, criminalized, racialized, and imprisoned. These practices, however, have long histories within both immigrant and native born communities in the United States for whom citizenship has always been constrained. How has the intensification of policing within immigrant communities forced us to re-think these overlapping and connected histories? How does a more nuanced understanding of these historiesâand the related relevance of race, gender, and sexualityâinform our work to address policing and prisons and expand our understandings of the Prison Industrial Complex?

Join Mizue Aizeki (Organizer and Documentary Photographer), Kenyon Farrow (Writer and Activist), Pooja Gehi (Social Justice Lawyer), Lilliam Juarez (organizer at the Workplace Project) and Mae Ngai (Columbia University) to address these as well as other questions.
