Short Abstract:

Women's access to housing has been underexplored in literature on urban restructuring and in anthropological research on gender and property. This panel intends to bring together research on the way gendered rights in shelter are affected by neoliberal restructuring.

Long Abstract:

Whilst gendered rights in property, housing and residence have long been a subject of anthropological research, few scholars have looked at the way urban restructuring, privatisation of housing, and the financialisation of social relationships that afford or deny women access to their own home produce new discourses on gender, family, extended kinship networks and relationships with the state.

The panel invites papers that explore gendered access to shelter in various contexts, with a special focus on global cities and the remaking of family and kinship under neoliberal regimes and processes of disinvestment in the welfare state.
