We're very excited to let you know that our special issue "Confinement Beyond Site: Connecting Urban and Prison Ethnographies"* is out with the Cambridge Journal of Anthropology! Situated squarely on the prison/street nexus, it includes an introduction on porosity and traversal by the three guest editors (Julienne Weegels, Andrew Jefferson and Tomas Max Martin), and seven excellent research articles on India (Mahuya Bandyopadhyay), Brazil (Hollis Moore), Nicaragua (Julienne Weegels), France and the US (Carolina Boe), Sierra Leone (Luisa Schneider), Myanmar (Andrew Jefferson and Tomas Max Martin), and Portugal (Manuela Cunha). It is concluded with an afterword by Steffen Jensen, on the urban and the carceral, and what this special issue has to offer to anthropology more broadly.

We hope you enjoy the read! >>> https://www.berghahnjournals.com/view/journals/cja/38/1/cja.38.issue-1.xml

*This special issue is a result of the GPRN-Securcit international conference 'Connecting Urban and Prison Ethnographies: Confinement and Security Beyond Site', organized at the University of Amsterdam in November 2017.
