The Body of Property

Chad Luck

Fordham University Press

This final chapter examines the violent 2004 killing of several Wisconsin hunters in light of the property issues raised over the course of the book. The tragic property dispute between Hmong immigrant Chai Soua Vang and a group of white hunters is used to underscore the complex interrelationship of ownership practices, spatial demarcation, and embodied experience. Contemporary American society, this chapter suggests, is still powerfully influenced by phenomenologies of possession, the same phenomenologies first explored by American writers across the antebellum period.

Keywords:   Wisconsin, killing, Chai Soua Vang, Hmong, phenomenology, ownership, antebellum, American society
