Andrew Urban is an Assistant Professor of American Studies and History at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. His forthcoming book, Brokering Servitude: Migration and Political Economies of Domesticity in the United States, 1850-1924 (NYU Press, 2017), examines how immigration policies, market regulation and cultural attitudes about servility shaped exchanges between capital and labor in American homes. A member of the Humanities Action Lab’s Steering Committee, Andy was also a founding member of the Guantánamo Public Memory Project, a coalition of faculty and students who curated a traveling museum exhibition about the US Naval Base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, from its acquisition during the War of 1898 to its use as a detention center for Cuban and Haitian refugees seeking asylum in the US, and its central role in the post-9/11 “War on Terror.” Andy is currently a Term VI Visiting Professor at Deep Springs College in Inyo County, California.
