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

Virtual Thursday, Mar 3, 2022 5 – 6:30 pm Register

Join as we welcome Ananya Roy, Professor of Urban Planning, Social Welfare, and Geography and The Meyer and Renee Luskin Chair in Inequality and Democracy at UCLA.

Ananya’s research is concerned with “racial banishment,” the pushing out of working-class communities of color from urban cores to the far peripheries of metropolitan regions.  

In collaboration with housing justice lawyers and movements in Los Angeles, she studies the role of municipal ordinances in such processes of banishment. 

Sponsored by The Program on Global Environment (PGE), Pozen Family Center for Human Rights and Faculty Working Group for the Committee on Environment, Urbanization and Geography (CEGU)

The event is part of the Frizzell Learning and Speaker Series in the College.
