Mary E. Johnson Lecture on Social Justice and Human Rights: Stealth Histories of Prison Pacification

This is a past event.

“Stealth Histories of Prison Pacification” by Orisanmi Burton, Assistant Professor Department of Anthropology, American University.

Burton's research explores the collision of Black-led movements for social, political, and economic transformation with state infrastructures of militarized policing, surveillance, and imprisonment. He is currently completing his first book manuscript,  “The Tip of the Spear:  Revolutionary Organizing and Prison Pacification in the Empire State”, which analyzes the prison as a domain of domestic warfare.

This lecture is made possible by the Mary Elizabeth Johnson Lecture Fund, established by Gloria Johnson-Powell '58 in memory of her mother.  The fund supports lectures on topics of social justice and human rights.
