Notes

Subject:
Dr. Jusionyte is a cultural anthropologist with a background in news journalism. She specializes in political and legal issues, applying an ethnographic approach to the study of security, governance, and borders. Since 2008, she has conducted fieldwork in the tri-border region between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, known as a haven of international organized crime for drug and human trafficking, contraband, and money laundering. Her new book, Savage Frontier: Making News and Security on the Argentine Border (2015, UC Press) focuses on the lived experiences of local journalists who draw on their encounters with crime, violence, and other forms of social vulnerability, marginalization and government impunity, to report on some illegal activities, but not others. Security for them is not an all-encompassing discourse about existential threats, but a lived experience embedded in their everyday practices, where the role of the media is to maintain the boundary between news stories and public secrets. Come and meet Dr. Jusionyte, who believes that social science research should participate in broader conversations on public issues and especially contribute to the well-being of communities under study, and therefore advocates for engaged and collaborative ethnographic projects.
