On the Cover

Our cover story, Jose Ragas's "Beyond Big Brother," brings to light emerging research on theuse of identity documents to assert belonging.

Ragas takes conventional analyses of biometric technologies and stands them on their ear. Image: Vhils (Alexandre Farto), Dissection/Via Pedro Ribeiro Simões/Flickr/CC BY 2.0.
