Elinor Ostrom and I are organizing a September 2010 conference, sponsored and hosted by the Lincoln Institute on Land Policy in Cambridge, Mass., on the evolution of property systems in natural resources. Confirmed participants (so far) include (in addition to Lin and myself,  in alphabetical order):

Richard Barnes (University of Hull)
William Blomquist (Indiana University School of Liberal Arts, Indianapolis)

I'm particularly excited that we will have a panel revisiting the standard economic history of the California Gold Rush. The conference presentations will ultimately become chapters in a book Lin and I will edit.

I will post the conference program when it is finalized.
