Land tenure in the U.S.: power, gender, and consequences for conservation decision making
AbstractLand tenure relations have both social and environmental implications, ranging from potential power issues to land stewardship. Drawing upon survey data of landowners collected in the Great Lakes Basin of the U.S., this study builds upon existing research by examining absentee landlords of agricultural land—a vastly understudied but growing category of landowners. By furthering analysis on gender dynamics in the landlord-tenant relationship, the study findings augment Gilbert and Beckley’s (Rural Sociology, 1993 ) suggestion that subordinate landlord-dominant tenant relationships may be a pattern and contribute to understanding the nuances that co-ownership potentially plays in these relationships.
