A presentation by Sherene H. Razackis Distinguished Professor and the Penny Kanner Endowed Chair in Gender Studies, UCLA. "In this paper, I pursue what race has to do with disposability through an examination of the death in custody of a Roma refugee. I end with comments about the connections that can be drawn between the processes of disposability for refugees, African Americans and Canadians and Indigenous peoples who die at the hands of the police. These connections reveal disposability to be a racial and global process orchestrated by states and sustained by professionals (medical, legal, police)."
