Contesting Displacement: Dispossession/Extraction/Gentrification


Contemporary capitalism and settler colonialism displace populations and dispossess them of their of lands, leading to interconnected struggles for justice. This daylong symposium brings together artists, activists, and scholars working on: water justice in Navaho Country; gentrification and anti-eviction justice in California; and resource extraction and land reclamation across the U.S. Southwest. The symposium will feature panels, lunch, and a walk-and-talk, all part of our collaborative approach to contesting displacement.
