IDCE 329 - Property and Community


“Property is not a thing, but a social relationship,” is this course’s point of departure. Questions relevant to a “social relations theory of property” have captured attention within the social sciences on many fronts. Where does “ownership” originate in different societies? What gives property its social value (prestige, power, privilege)? The course readings are global in nature, allowing us to examine property as a social relation in South Asia, Africa, and Brazil. The focus for the course in Spring 2016 is “Citizenship and Belonging”. Falls under both the People on the Move and the Land, Food, and Natural Resource Governance signatures.
