Carceral Borders

Current Offerings

Carceral Borders (7116): This seminar will explore the intersection of U.S. criminal law and immigration law enforcement, including: the bureaucratic bonds between the criminal law enforcement and immigration law enforcement systems; the effect of citizenship status on criminal legal processes and outcomes; the immigration consequences of criminal convictions; the procedural rules and norms governing the policing of crimes of migration; the policing of the border region and immigrant communities; the punishment of noncitizens; and the extraterritorial reach of the criminal law. The focus will be primarily domestic, but we will pay some attention to comparative developments. Special Instructions: Grades will be based on class participation; a short writing assignment analyzing the immigration consequences of a criminal plea deal; and either (1) a short writing assignment in the form of an op-ed or research proposal (two units) or (2) a long research paper with consent of the instructor (three units). After the term begins, students accepted into the course can transfer from section (01) into section (02), which meets the R requirement, with consent of the instructor.
