A new book ….. Placing the Border in Everyday Life

Read my new book chapter, entitled ‘‘No place like home”: boundary traffic through the prison gate in Placing the Border in Everyday Life, out this month.

Edited by Reece Jones and Corey Johnson, this book complicates the connection between borders and sovereign states by identifying the individuals and organizations that engage in border work at a range of scales and places. This edited volume includes contributions from major international scholars in the field of border studies and allied disciplines who analyze where and why border work is done. By combining a new theorization of border work beyond the state with rich empirical case studies, this book makes a ground-breaking contribution to the study of borders and the state in the era of globalization.
