I’m looking forward to being part of the keynote panel along with Patrick Anderson and Dylan Rodríguez for the Foucault and Madness conference Sept 26th, 2014 at California State University San Marcos.
Here if their writeup about the panel:
“Our Prison Industry has a Complex: the Irresistible Police State”
We are proud to present a keynote panel that is diverse in its knowledge about police, surveillance, and incarceration. Given their research into racist state violence, hunger strikes, and the treatment of incarcerated trans and queer bodies, these seasoned scholars will be tackling the central prison-industry-complex issues of our day, including: the elimination of spaces for protest, police tactics and norms, and the “best practices” of privatizing police.
