Hudson McFann
I am a geographer, editor, and designer.

Through my research and in my writing, I explore historical and political dimensions of international humanitarianism, security, aesthetics, memory, and mass violence. Currently, I am 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.
