Hudson McFann
POLITICAL GEOGRAPHER  |  Researcher, Writer, & Editor
My research and writing explores historical and political dimensions of international humanitarianism, security, aesthetics, memory, and mass violence.

I am currently a PhD candidate in geography at Rutgers, where I am writing a dissertation on the history and legacies of Khao I Dang refugee camp—built in Thailand after the Cambodian genocide—and coordinating a related oral history project called "Recollecting Khao I Dang."
Prior to entering the PhD program in geography at Rutgers, I completed a BA at Ohio State, an MA at NYU, and spent an academic year in Canada on a Fulbright grant. In 2020, my first book, Futureproof: Security Aesthetics and the Management of Life, which I co-edited with Asher Ghertner and Daniel Goldstein, was published by Duke University Press.

I live in New York, where I also work part-time at Gramercy Typewriter Co.
