We are delighted to welcome Mark Maguire to The Programmable City project on Wednesday 25th February, 4-6pm in room 2.31, Iontas Building, Maynooth University. This is the fourth of our Programmable City seminars this academic year. Mark is a lecturer in Anthropology at Maynooth University. His research focuses on the areas of migration and security. He is concerned with exploring international migration through ethnographic research on everyday lives and the technologies and processes of securitization, especially counter-terrorism, biometric security, affective computing and the detection of abnormal behaviour and ‘malintent’. Mark is author of Differently Irish (Woodfield Press 2004), which explores the lives of Vietnamese refugees and their families, and, with co-author Fiona Murphy, Integration in Ireland: the everyday lives of African migrants (Manchester 2012). Mark is co-Editor of Social Anthropology/Anthropologie Sociale.
