Graduate Voices in the Lawscape II: Power in Urban Spaces and Food Systems

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups: Legal Geography Specialty Group, Urban Geography Specialty Group
Organizers: Alida Cantor, Brittany Wheeler, Sarah Klosterkamp
Chairs: Brittany Wheeler


Legal geography explores the practice and conceptualization of the law in and via place and space, examining the relationship between law and the changing spatial, social, and environmental conditions that create and contribute to our understanding of the world(s) we inhabit. The Legal Geography Specialty Group of the AAG welcomes all graduate student scholars who pursue research that involves legal inquiry-whether you consider yourself a 'spatial detective' (Bennett 2015), a transdisciplinary/post-disciplinary scholar (Braverman et al. 2014), or are simply interested in the utility of legal geography as a subdiscipline for supporting your work. As legal geographers we study a wide range of topics, including (im)migration, environmental justice, property, resource management, the administration of law in place, law and urban spaces, and much more.

This session is part 2 of 3, and will focus on topics around capitalist food systems and food deserts, regulation of urban spaces, and houselessness.
