Taking place on 24 - 25 October 2019, the workshop aims at examining changes of social structures that shape rural life and livelihoods and the subjectivities of rural people. By social structures, we mean those structuring principles of society which are, in general, difficult to transform, in the short term, by individual and collective action. In capitalist societies, these are primarily social relations of capital and labour, i.e. class relations manifested in differentiated positions in the production process and differentiated access to and ownership of resources, e.g. land, technology, seeds, and labour. Class relations, as a matter of course, intersect with manifold other social relations, such gender, generation, race, ethnicity, etc.
