Cover of 'Intrusive Beauty'

Intrusive Beauty
Poems
By Joseph J. Capista

In this powerful debut, Capista traverses earth and ether to yield poems that elucidate the space between one’s life and one’s livelihood. While its landscapes range from back-alley Baltimore to the Bitterroot Valley, this book remains close to unbidden beauty and its capacity to sway one’s vision of the world.

Cover of 'Technologies of Suspicion and the Ethics of Obligation in Political Asylum'

Technologies of Suspicion and the Ethics of Obligation in Political Asylum
Edited by Bridget M. Haas and Amy Shuman

Taking everyday practices and interactions as their focus, contributors draw on various theoretical perspectives to examine how tensions between humanitarianism and security are negotiated at the local level. They thus show how asylum seekers are produced as suspicious subjects by the very systems to which they appeal for protection.
