Please join South Asian Students & Scholars (SASS) and the Polis Project for our Spring 2018 lecture-conversations: ‘Bodies & Borders‘ on Feb 21st at 6pm, in room 5414.
This talk will feature Carl Lindskoog, assistant professor of history at Raritan Valley Community College, and an alum of the Graduate Center. Dr. Lindskoog is a foremost authority on the history of Haitians and immigration detention in the United States. His latest book investigates when detention became a centerpiece of U.S. immigration policy. Detain and Punish reveals why the practice was reinstituted in 1981 after being halted for several decades and how the system expanded to become the world’s largest immigration detention regime.
Snacks will be provided.
