Romm Lewkowicz

Phd Candidate, Anthropology

My research and teaching draw on political theory, critical legal studies, and ethnographic methodologies to reevaluate the history and experience of forced migration, asylum regulation, and post-war European integration. My dissertation ‚ÄúDocumenting the Undocumented‚ÄĚ is an ethnography of refugee biometric surveillance in the EU.
