ID 229 - 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. For example, what does ”ownership” mean in different societies? What gives property its social value (prestige, power, privilege)?  How are current land tenure and property rights interventions changing community relations and family dynamics? The course readings are global in nature, allowing us to examine property as a social relation in South Asia, Africa, and Latin America.  Capstone eligible seminar
