Institute on Contested Landscapes 

May 13-17, 2013

Applications Due February 15, 2013 

We are accepting applications to attend the inaugural Summer Institute on Contested Landscapes. Focused on property, this week-long session 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 frequently asked questions can be found in the RFP. Applications are due to social sciences@cornell.edu by 11:59 (EST) on February 15, 2013. 

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
