Abstract: This paper examines the continuity of the Israeli settler colonial project into the contemporary moment – as manifested in the city of Tel Aviv – and its transfiguration into current socio-political and spatial processes in the urban arena. It offers a close reading of a case study from which such continuity emerges, exposing the […]


Description: Canada’s Indian Act is infamously sexist. Through many iterations of the legislation a woman’s status rights flowed from her husband, and even once it was amended to reinstate rights lost through marriage or widowhood, First Nations women could not necessarily pass status on to their descendants. That injustice has rightly been subject to much scrutiny, […]


Abstract: Repossession of land by Indigenous people is commonly understood as a legal act that unfolds within the confines of state apparatuses. But for many Indigenous urbanites, legal repossession is both impossible and irrelevant due to their histories of dispossession and dislocation. Moreover, while land repossession in Australia is predominantly non‐urban, I demonstrate that land […]


Abstract: Social mix policies have emerged as a prominent mechanism to legitimate neighbourhood redevelopment efforts across the US. Despite integrationist rhetoric, results often disabuse marginalised communities of their claims to the city. This paper employs a hybrid spatio‐temporal analysis at the intersection of political‐economic theories of gentrification and post‐colonial and Black geographies literatures to examine […]


Abstract: This article examines rural settlement in Constantine, a département in French Algeria, at the beginning of the 1900s. By taking into account the timing of colonial settlement for almost 100 municipalities, it shows how the changing geographical conditions and the relative quantities of land and labour shaped the colonial land policy and settler modes of production.

Excerpt: While Grey Owl’s ethnocultural transformation has been dismissed as failing to subvert settler-colonial power structures, I challenge scholars to begin to rethink Grey Owl’s subversion in terms other than settler colonialism, or, even better, to think about how his subversion reveals intersections between settler colonialism and other discourses. I argue that Grey Owl’s working-class […]


Excerpt: Soon after I enrolled to study law in 1979, I read Stephen Lendrum’s article about the 1840 Coorong massacre in the ‘Adelaide Law Review’. I belong to the land and peoples of the Coorong, and had been aware of the Coorong massacre from stories told to me by my family and elders. I had […]


Abstract: Frederick Philip Grove’s Settlers of the Marsh (1925) is a settler-colonial farm novel. Grove’s novel is an exemplary Canadian instance of a mode of fiction which attended the ‘settler revolution’ – the agricultural colonisation of temperate range lands in North and South America, Eurasia, Australasia and Southern Africa in the second half of the nineteenth […]


Abstract: The displacement of Indigenous populations by settler societies forming within the British Empire was a global development during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, one in which settler sport took a significant role. Settler colonialism must be understood as a spatial and environmental phenomenon as well as a social and political one. This essay focuses on […]


Abstract: This book examines contemporary Indigenous affairs through questions of relationality, presenting a range of interdisciplinary perspectives on the what, who, when, where, and why of Indigenous-settler relations. It also explores relationality, a key analytical framework with which to explore Indigenous-settler relations in terms of what the relational characteristics are; who steps into these relations […]
