Nancy Scheper-Hughes, Professor Emerita and affiliated faculty member of BCSM, has co-authored an essay with Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco in the Los Angeles Review of Books. In the essay, they argue that “Our history is riddled with hidden tortures and violent separations of families... Today’s torture is the separation of children from parents.”
