I’m thrilled to introduce a new member of the Anthropoliteia team: Maya Barak. Maya graduated from the University of Michigan in 2009 with a B.A. in Social Anthropology and Peace and Social Justice. She is currently working on her M.A. in Criminology at Eastern Michigan University. Her specific interests include: immigration, border security, and policing; economic globalization, capitalism, and corporate and state crime; and the construction of, as well as discourse surrounding, crime and criminals.
Maya will be heading up our In the News feature as well as potentially some other occasional posts. I hope everyone gives her a warm welcome; I know I’m thrilled to have her aboard!
