    With the rise of the individualized "gig" economy, the increasing reliance on financial actors in economic and urban development projects, the privatization of pension arrangements and the attacks on unions, and the scandals of inequality and housing crises in many places around the world, it is hard not to recognize that the role of property in globalized forms of capitalism has been shifting over the past decades. These transforms manifest themselves legally in the forms of property, the identities of property holders— and relatedly, the patterns of social life—that are seen as legitimate and as worthy of protection and perpetuation. Newly empowered agents, governance mechanisms, and discourses provide the conceptual and material architecture that support these transformations. This panel attempts to contextualize those shifts by engaging with local instantiations of transnational patterns of property concentration and exclusion, and their justifications.

    Business meeting will be held on Friday, January 4, 2019 from 7  - 8:30 am.
