Citizenship Studies Call for Papers

Guest editors: Sharry Aiken and Stephanie J. Silverman.  First drafts are due on 30 June 2019

Recent scholarship on immigration detention diagnoses, dissects, and interprets the multiple meanings of detention sites, and what can be done about them. The discussion on why and how to abolish detention is virtually absent. The recent 'De-Carceral Futures' workshop invited scholars, practitioners, and people with lived experiences to discuss current and future worlds without immigrant incarceration. Some of the workshop's outputs are already available via a Policy Options podcast and the Queen's Faculty of Law's archiving the keynote plenary with Jonathan S. Simon and Harsha Walia

Key points for the Special Issue (SI) include: 
- detention’s complex relationships to other social movements;
- the underappreciated roles of women’s voices and actions in countering or resisting state violence;
- questions of global justice for local anti-detention actions;
- visions for alternative modalities of migration management that are not predicated on incarceration; 
- and the interconnections between liberty, legal status and citizenship 

Accordingly, the SI aims not to produce a consensus on ways to achieve migrant justice but will instead generate a potentially path-breaking space to explore different interpretations and implications of detention abolitionism.
