by Ankhi Mukherjee
  • Key point 1
    There are demographics, such as undocumented migrants, that are visible but, through acts of disavowal, are not seen.

  • Key point 3
    Individuals impacted by poverty are not seen as individuals but as huddled masses, making it hard for them to fit into psychoanalytic paradigms.
