Challenging Ownership: Meanings, Space and Identity

Convenors:
Penny English
Francis King
Sarah Blandy

The title of this stream embraces conflicts over ownership as well as challenges to the meaning of the concept of 'ownership'. Papers are welcomed which address any context in which the law seeks to define, regulate, limit or conceptualise the ownership of tangible or intangible property.

In particular this might include:

  • The emergence of new forms of land ownership or regulation
  • Housing and homelessness
  • The boundaries between public and private ownership or regulation
  • The relationship of property (including intangible, indigenous and cultural property) to individual or collective identity

Contributions which cross traditional disciplinary boundaries are particularly welcome.

Abstracts may only be submitted via the Easy Chair Platform. They must be no longer than 300 words and should include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 18th January 2016.
