Todd Miller

Independent journalist Todd Miller will speak about how the border industrial complex has boomed in the United States since the 1990s, it has created a Border Patrol paranoia in the country, and it has been financed and exported to a world where displacement due to economic, political, and environmental violence has become the norm. Miller will also speak about how people across the world are getting organized to resisting and storming the walls of this new global border order.

Miller is the author of the books Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Securityand Storming the Wall: Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security. Miller is the recipient of the 2018 Izzy Award for excellence in investigative journalism. His forthcoming book, Empire of Borders: The Expansion of the U.S. Border Around the World, will be released this summer.

Sponsors: Mike Curb College of Arts, Media, and Communication Distinguished Speaker Program, the Department of Journalism, Department of Central American Studies, Department of Asian American Studies, the Oviatt Library.
