Maia RodriguezMaia Rodriguez’s research seeks to integrate the spatial concerns of contemporary border studies with the materiality of Marxist ecology and use-value. She asks of landed conflicts such as that of Israel-Palestine, US/First Peoples, India/Pakistan, and others: How does land relate to a conception of nationhood and, in turn, identity? What is the state’s relationship to place, and to resources within its borders?
