This talk is concerned with dispossession and displacement in the contemporary American metropolis. Eschewing familiar vocabularies of eviction and gentrification, I emphasize processes of state-instituted violence against targeted bodies and communities. Conceptualizing such dispossession as racial banishment, I situate the contemporary housing question within the long histories of racial capitalism and a postcolonial critique of liberal democracy.
