Please find below the programme of the workshop * Structural Transformation of the Countryside * on 24-25 October 2019, in Berlin. The workshop aims at examining changes of social structures that shape rural life and livelihoods and the subjectivities of rural people:

  • How are dominant social structures in the rural world shaped?
  • How have they emerged over time?
  • How are they perceived and felt by rural people?
  • How are they politically enforced?
  • How can they be transformed, and by whom? What are entry points for emancipatory political strategies?

We would be delighted to see you at the workshop!
