Labyrinth Books; Humanities Council
In his new book, Daniel Heller-Roazen explores the role of the missing in human communities, asking an urgent question: How does a person become a nonperson, whether by disappearance, disenfranchisement, or civil, social, or biological death? He is joined by critic and art historian Hal Foster for a many-faceted consideration of what it means for somebody to become a nobody or a nonperson.
