Histories of Land, Economy, and Power

This conference brings together scholars working on a range of different national contexts to explore the historical relationship between land, economies, and power. Ranging across the modern period, contributions will consider the institutional configurations, political and cultural frameworks, and economic imperatives that shape the way land has been – and continues to be – assembled as a constitutive element of political and economic systems. We aim to give particular attention to empirical patterns of the emergence of regimes of territorial governance, land marketization, and ways of thinking about property and wealth that reveal possibilities for alternative models of economic distribution and rights allocation.

Presentation sessions will take place on Friday, November 9th. A workshop based on pre-circulated papers will follow on Saturday, November 10th.
