Lauren Martin Durham University, UK

Lauren Martin is a Lecturer in Human Geography at Durham University. She holds a PhD in Geography and a Certificate in Women’s Studies from the University of Kentucky. Broadly speaking, Lauren is interested in the spatial practices of migration control in Europe and the United States. Her current research explores the commodification of detention spaces and migrants’ time, and the role of non-state actors in border production. Her previous work examined the intimate and legal geographies of US family detention practices, particularly the ways in which certain understandings of ‘family’ were linked to particular forms of confinement, privacy, parental authority, and autonomy. She has also published on the spatial ontologies of security and topological theorisations of space. https://www.dur.ac.uk/geography/staff/geogstaffhidden/?id=14662
