      Territories of Poverty: A New Agenda of Poverty Scholarship

      Friday, Sept. 14 (9:30AM) - Saturday, Sept. 15 (12:30pm) | Blum
      Center for Developing Economies, UC Berkeley


      Situated in a unique historical conjuncture, the Territories of
      Poverty conference seeks to define a new agenda of poverty
      scholarship. It is inspired by the sense that it is time to move
      beyond the usual North-South geographies that have persisted in this
      field of inquiry, notably the study of EuroAmerican welfare states
      versus development as an international project in the global South.
      With this in mind, the conference takes up a series of historical
      entanglements: between welfare and development, between security and
      penalty on the one hand and humanitarianism and poverty alleviation on
      the other hand, between radical social movements and bureaucracies of
      poverty.
