Yalile Suriel is an assistant professor of universities and power. Her research explores the intersections between the histories of higher education and carcerality in order to better understand how institutions of higher learning have shaped power relations within and beyond the institution. She is currently working on two book projects: one focused on the histories of student activism and the various institutional responses to it between the years of 1960 and 1990. The second book project examines the lives and experiences of custodial staff in higher education throughout the mid 19th and 20th century.
