Michaelmas Series: Grounding the Struggle - Land and the Working People in the Global South

This seminar series will seek to discuss the struggles on and over the land in relation to the working people in the global south. The speakers will address who are the working people? What relationships exist between the urban and rural forms of labour and what does an assumed separation of the urban and rural divide create – the genesis of the rural/urban divide and the effect on the struggles of the working people. In discussing the relationship to the land how do we come to understand varying forms of work?  The speakers, in thinking through the agrarian question, will provide analysis and insight into how we can understand gender relations, property relations and the state. Perhaps most critical to this approach is redefining how we understand forms of work in relation to the land under the assumption that land remains a critical space in the global south.
