Just a quick note: come see me and some great colleagues at the SLSA Roundtable titled “Quarantine and Flow” at Session 8D in room San Antonio A from 9:00 -10:30AM on Saturday October 11.
We’ll be discussing the (im)possibility of quarantine in the global neoliberal contemporary, talking about contamination, contagion, pollution, and much more.
My paper, “Nation, Race, and Quarantine,” will address the history of biopolitics and the racialization, nationalization, and securitization of disease. I’ll be talking a bit about Ebola in popular media.

Hope to see you there!
