David Hernández is a leading expert in the study of U.S. immigration policy and enforcement. Against the backdrop of twentieth century immigration policy, his talk, “Borders, Detention, and the Trump Era,” will focus on developments under recent administrations, including those of the critical past year. Hernández has published widely on the topic and is currently working on a book, "Undue Process: Immigrant Detention and Lesser Citizenship," which examines the intersections of immigration, detention, race, and imprisonment in the United States. He is Assistant Professor of Latina/o & Latin American Studies at Mount Holyoke College, where his courses include: "The Politics of Inequality," "Introduction to Latina/o Studies," "Visualizing Immigrant Narratives," and "Disposable People." He is also co-editor of the anthology Critical Ethnic Studies, A Reader (2016).
