he Social Lives of Land

Understanding how people are living on, with, and from their land reveals the often-hidden dynamics of contemporary social and political change, according to Wendy Wolford, Robert A. and Ruth E. Polson Professor of Global Development and vice provost for International Affairs.

This topic is explored in the new volume The Social Lives of Land (Cornell University Press, 2024) co-edited with Michael Goldman and Nancy Lee Peluso.

Join us in-person or via Zoom for a Chats in the Stacks book talk with Wolford where she will discuss how The Social Lives of Land weaves together novel theoretical and empirical insights and contributions from multiple disciplines and geographic locations to uncover histories and re-tell stories that focus on the lived experiences of rural and urban land dispossession and repossession.
