Gavriel Cutipa-Zorn’s research covers the imperial histories of surveillance and agribusiness throughout the twentieth century. His book project, Net Empire: US and Israeli Technologies of Counterinsurgency Across the Americas, argues that US efforts to subcontract the control of movement of people in Palestine and Latin America shaped contemporary policing protocols and data surveillance of agricultural farmland in the United States. Cutipa-Zorn’s writing has been published in Cultural Dynamics, Review of International Studies, and Space and Society. He received his PhD in American studies from Yale University and his BA in history and Africana studies from Brown University.
