The Ethics of Now

The southern border has loomed large in the contemporary American imagination as landscape, lifeline, weapon, and metaphor. Drawn from his own experiences, Francisco Cantú's account of policing that border starkly depicts how fully the current system dehumanizes migrants, agents, and those of us who do not demand a better way.

The Ethics of Now is a series of conversations between Duke historian Adriane Lentz Smith and a range of artists, advocates, and authors that explore the ethical challenges facing the Durham and Duke communities.
