Faculty Tani Sebro Politics

Tani Sebro recently published the article "Surplus precaritization: Supply chain capitalism and the geoeconomics of hope in Myanmar's borderlands" in the journal Political Geography.

The article is co-authored with Mary Mostafanezhad, Elliott Prasse-Freeman, and Roger Norum.
