Event description

Description

Questions of ownership, occupation, belonging, tenure, and rights in land profoundly structure the shape of cities, the lives of their citizens and the possibility for intervention in their development. Social relations in property and the distributional outcomes to which they give rise, are therefore highly consequential for the socio-ecological futures of cities.

Yet ‘property’ is too often considered in its most narrow form – as the private exchange rights that flow from individual ownership of land. This view makes invisible the diverse, plural and alternative relationships to place – that we might call ‘property’ – everyday in contemporary cities.

The Whose land is it Anyway Symposium 2017 will bring together researchers, communities and practitioners to discuss how to rethink property and belonging in contemporary cities. Our purpose is to share diverse stories about everyday property practices in order to build better conceptual frameworks. We welcome papers that address the following kinds of themes and issues:

  • Indigenous socio-cultural practices in cities

  • Informal property practices

  • Housing and squatting movements

  • Anti-eviction and anti-gentrification movements that reorganise property relationships

  • Place-based struggles

  • Alternative mapping practices and decolonizing research methodologies

  • The ethics and politics of making visible marginalised everyday property practices
