  6. Empire of Exiles: How the American War Machine Uses Mobility to Control Workers and Prisoners
    Darryl Li
    Assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Chicago
    The United States is pursuing an open-ended “Global War on Terror” but at the same time operates in most of the world as an empire without formal colonies. This lecture explores an important aspect of how the U.S. wages war, namely its use of mobility. The United States now employs in war zones large numbers of workers from the Global South. Because they are neither Americans nor locals, they are easier to exploit and control. The same logic is at work in the treatment of many prisoners in the War on Terror, including those sent to Guantanamo Bay.
