Contested Property Claims

Aktivitet: Deltagelse i eller arrangement af en begivenhed Organisation af og deltagelse i konference


Contested Property Claims will set focus on the ideas, practices, and institutions of property that contribute to shaping human relationships in societies around the world. Behind all property regimes lie histories of appropriation and expropriation, and from within they are constantly challenged by those who point to the social injustices that they can produce. We can call these attempts to interrupt the dominant system of contracts and exchanges ‘contested property claims’. They are points of friction where economic, political, and ethical issues around property are brought to light, and they illustrate how disagreements over property force social actors to reason about the institution of property as such. We invite scholars from all fields to submit paper proposals on the ways property is performed and contested. The conference will take place at Aarhus University, Denmark.
