Institute on Contested Landscapes. Cornell University, May 13-May 17, 2013
Applications Due February 15, 2013
We are accepting applications from advanced graduate students and junior faculty to attend the inaugural Summer Institute on Contested Landscapes. Focused on "property," this week-long workshop seeks to develop and apply critical analyses to important questions. What is property, who and what is eligible for ownership, and who decides? What is the relationship between changing property forms and sustainability, development, and democracy?
We anticipate selecting 10 applicants to engage in cross-disciplinary exchange. Housing, food and up to $600 in transportation expenses will be provided.
Application instructions and answers to frequently asked questions can be found at:

The Institute on Contested Landscapes is sponsored by Cornell's Institute for the Social Sciences, Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, and the Social Science Research Council.
