P?rofessor Julian Go (University of Chicago) will deliver a public lecture entitled 'The Imperial Origins of Policing: Race, Militarization, and the Boomerang Effect in Britain and the US'.
ABSTRACT: If it is by now commonplace to bemoan the fact of militarized policing, we know less about its birth, development and social logics. This talk offers a critical historical sociology of policing in the US & Britain, where the so-called 'civil' policing model originated. It theorizes the racialized imperiality of modern policing, exploring how militarization from the birth of policing itself has been inextricably tethered to the global colour line, colonialism and empire.
