“This Might as Well Be Prison”: Homeless Shelters, Black Sex Offenders, and Hyper-Surveillance

Terrance Wooten is a Mark Steinberg Weil Early Career Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for the Humanities at Washington University in St. Louis. He is a black urbanist whose scholarly interests are located at the intersections of African American studies, gender and sexuality studies, studies of poverty and homelessness, and carceral studies. His research examines the history and spatial politics of homelessness in the U.S., with specific attention to the salience of race, gender and sexuality.

The City Seminar, in collaboration with the Divided City Initiative is delighted to present four cutting-edge lectures in the Urban Humanities during the month of February.
