Hudson McFann
I am a historical and political geographer, editor, designer, and typewriter technician.

For more than a decade, I have been researching and writing on historical and political dimensions of international humanitarianism, security, aesthetics, memory, and mass violence. Currently, I am a PhD candidate in geography at Rutgers and am writing a dissertation on the history and legacies of Khao I Dang refugee camp, established in Thailand after the fall of the Khmer Rouge. I am also coordinating an ongoing 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, co-edited with Asher Ghertner and Daniel Goldstein, was published by Duke University Press.

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