dc.description.abstract The use of eminent domain power to take private land for private use continues to grow in the United States. Many American people lost their homes or businesses to city and council driven economic development in low-income neighborhoods. This paper seeks to explore the social implications that eminent domain power has on residents and examines power that is used by cities and councils to create economic development through the taking of land in low-income communities. I explore these issues through a case study of the Dallas Cowboys Stadium relocation to Arlington, Texas utilizing discourse analysis. I use Henri Lefebvre's conceptual triad of representational space, representations of space, and spatial practices to understand the production of urban space through the use of eminent domain power. en_US
