Dear PeDAGoG Community:

We are excited to share this brand new publication to help create bridges
between the scholarship on the Commons by Ostrom Workshop scholars and
those who think of the commons from a more critical perspective. Most
importantly, we draw on lessons from the commons movements in both urban
and rural areas globally. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.crsust.2021.100102

Happy reading!

This article brings to center-stage questions of inequality within the
context of contemporary theory and scholarship on the commons. We engage
with the commons literature to explore how social, economic, and political
inequalities affect who has access to and control over the commons. We make
the following key contributions as a way to engage simultaneously and bring
together different strands of the literature. One, we take stock of
existing scholarship examining the commons and inequality, bringing into
sharp focus the role of race, gender, caste, and class, among other
dimensions of inequality. Two, we critically engage with scholarship that
is pushing the boundaries of commons theory by exploring the processes of
commoning or decommoning via “grabbed commons”. Three, by using the lens of
commoning and linking it to the historical processes of colonization and
capitalist dispossessions, we seek to foster a conversation with scholars
working on emancipatory claims to the commons. Based on such a synthesis,
we offer a research agenda to broaden the theoretical and empirical scope
of commons scholarship, especially with the goal of building stronger
bridges with critical property and environmental justice scholarship.
