I have a number of speaking engagements coming up, including:
In August 2017, at the annual conference of the Royal Geographical Association (in London) and in September, at the conference of RC21, the Urban and regional Development section of the International Sociological Association (in Leeds), I’ll be presenting work from my British Academy project on private equity landlords in the United States. The paper is called Automated Landlord: Disrupting a financial backwater and securing market order, and I look forward to feedback on this work. Later in September I’ll be thinking through the relations between the automated landlord and urban automation at an international workshop held by the Urban Institute at the University of Sheffield.
September 2017: Constructing a New Asset Class: Property-led Financial Accumulation After the Crisis. Third international seminar of the Real Estate/Financial Complex at KU Leuven.
