Research Abstract
As a Soros Justice Fellow, Shull is currently working with non-profit Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC) to dismantle the immigration detention system from the “inside” by challenging censorship practices, exposing abuses, and lifting up migrant voices in popular media and public discourse.
