Ieva Jusionyte

Ieva Jusionyte is a political and legal anthropologist whose life and work has taken her back and forth across three continents: from her home country Lithuania, where she grew up and later worked as a journalist, to the East Coast of the U.S., where she went to graduate school, to the borderlands of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, where she has been doing ethnographic research. Ieva's first book, "Savage Frontier: Making News and Security on the Argentine Border," explores the links between crime (such as drug trafficking and contraband), security (as it is understood by policy makers and experienced by border area residents), and news journalists. Ieva holds a joint appointment as Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology and the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida, where she coordinates the Crime, Law and Governance in the Americas program.
