Space, Race, Bodies III: Walls

The construction of walls for security practices related to migration, asylum and refuge, and domestic prisons has significant human rights and social justice implications. Such practices are inextricably tied to social forms of exclusion and discrimination that create barriers to social, political, and economic well-being. The purpose of this conference is to facilitate engagement between academic researchers, criminal justice organisations, and migrant advocates on the local as well as trans-national connections between practices of security and social exclusion as they effect communities of colour, migrants, and Indigenous peoples.

Interested participants should send 200w abstracts and proposals, including a 50w bio, to

Abstracts will be accepted on a rolling basis until 1 April 2018.
