  • Abstract:

    Futureproof: Security Aesthetics and the Management of Life (Duke University Press, 2020), co-edited with Hudson McFann and Daniel Goldstein, examines security as a sensory domain shaped by affect and image as much as rationalities and rules. It insists that security must be studied through the menace of walls as much as the engineering principles that go into their making, redirecting focus from hard infrastructures and visible technologies toward what we term security aesthetics.
