Empire of Borders

The second installment of the of the Social Anatomy of a Deportation Regimes Critical Border Studies Book Talk series will be taking place on Thursday, October 17 at 6:00pm at the John Jay Sociology Lounge. Award winning investigative Journalist Todd Miller will be presenting on his book "Empire of Borders".

Miller has written and researched about border issues for more than 15 years, including throughout Latin America and the world. His latest book "Empire of Borders" traces Washington's policy of pushing back of the US border into the interior of Latin America (and indeed the world) as a fundamental technique of US Imperialism through in depth investigative reports from Guatemala to the Philippines to Palestine. In this talk Miller will present his findings from this book and the broader implications for the current migrant crisis at the border as it is shaped by the vested interests of the shadowy US border security industry.
