Next Friday and Saturday Savannah Law School will host a symposium on progressive property that celebrates the opening of their new building -- the renovated Candler Hospital, which dates back to 1819. They're calling it "Re-Integrating Spaces." Professor Marc Roark and the editors of the Savannah Law Review have put together a great symposium. The panel topics are:
Place, Space, and Meaning Within the Law
Examining the role of physical space in shaping the societal sense of the meaning that property holds and the laws that govern property.
Historical Perspectives in Modern Context
Discussing how historical perspectives and preservation law influence the use and meaning of property in a modern context.
The Impact of Property Rights on Civil Rights
Exploring the influence of physical space on the experience of race, class, gender, and sexuality groups.
Property Transformation and Repurposing
Exploring the changing and competing uses of physical space and how these uses impact societal development and influence the law.
