Theorizing the Land
Fall 2023
Taught By: Jessica Pisano
Section: A

CRN: 15428

Credits: 3

Dominant approaches in the social sciences focus on land as property, with property usually understood as a relationship among people with respect to things. This course widens our theoretical lens to consider epistemologies rooted in a variety of different global traditions, from understandings of stewardship to indigenous ontologies that posit an integrated vision of life within and upon the land. This course brings together work in political theory, broadly construed, and empirical research engaging how historical and contemporary human communities have lived with and thought about land.
