  • Abstract:

    Land Fictions: The Commodification of Land in City and Country (Cornell University Press, forthcoming), co-edited with Bob Lake, considers the role of narrative and fiction in transforming land as a socially and ecologically embedded relation into a commodity to be bought and sold. Breaking down barriers between urban studies and agrarian studies, it shows how instruments and discourses of real estate market making move between country and city, highlighting land grabbing as a global process shaped by both urban and agrarian revolutions.
