Governments increasingly use detention as a central component of immigration and asylum policy. The lecture addresses several important questions.

What does immigration detention look like? How is it a reflection of those societies that tolerate its use and the policies that support and endorse its expansion? What place does it have in the journeys of those migrating across borders today?

Using photography and testimony, this lecture visually translates several immigration detention systems and shares first-hand stories.
