Xavier Durham (he/him) is a rising fourth year graduate student in the Department of Sociology at UC Berkeley. His project "Discourse and Private Policing on University Campuses" contends with the rise of private policing in the United States, an employment sector that has sharply outpaced public police and poses new questions for the future of social control, political economy, contemporary governance, and even the future of policing itself. Outside of academia, he enjoys musical theatre, banana bread, and making the occasional viral tweet.
