Fellowship Work Summary, 2019–20

Angela Stuesse drafted five book chapters, transcribed fifty hours of interviews, and made other substantial progress on her book project, #FreeDany: Dreaming and Detention in Dixie, a creative nonfiction book coauthored with Dany Vargas, that explores how the lives of undocumented youth in the twenty-first century have been indelibly shaped by the country’s shifting discourses and policies on immigration since 9/11. She also wrote “Undocumented Activism and Minor Politics: Inside the Cramped Political Spaces of Deportation Defense Campaigns” with Austin Kocher for Antipode (2020).
