This is the blog of Joshua J. Kurz, a Lecturer in Sociology and Global Studies at the National University of Singapore.

My recent publications examine the constitutive role of racism in US border security practices and policies, the production of ‘immigration’ as a category of thought and as a political technology in the wake of decolonization, and the shifting power relations surrounding human migration when disconnected from state-centered mythologies of ’emigration’ and ‘immigration’.

This is essentially a work blog, which will serve as a platform for me to develop thoughts, collect and archive material, and practice some modest form of public scholarship. I will also post some thoughts about photography, as well as some of my photographs.

Links to my articles, CV, etc can also be found at the following:
