Images of Illegalized Immigration: Towards a Critical Iconography of Politics

Nancy Hiemstra, of the Department of Cultural Analysis and Theory at Stony Brook  University, reviews Images of Illegalized Immigration: Towards a Critical Iconography of Politics. The book examines the importance of the visual representation of migration and how they shape popular understanding. The book offers a wide interpretation on what an “image” is and also offers suggestions for countering the process through which immigrants are “illegalized” and rendered invisible.
