Property, Personhood, and Police: Racial Banishment in Postcolonial Los Angeles

03/06/2020 - 3:30pm
W.T. Young Library Auditorium
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Ananya Roy, UCLA

This talk is concerned with processes of dispossession at the present historical conjuncture of racial capitalism in the United States. Conceptualizing Los Angeles as the post-colony, Roy demonstrates how police logics govern the relationship between property and personhood and produce geographies of racial banishment. She also foregrounds how housing and racial justice movements mobilize against such regimes of policing, creating and deploying frameworks of abolition and liberation.
