Agrarian Change and Social Reproduction Working Groups: Joint Call for Papers

The Agrarian Change and Social Reproduction Working Groups invite proposals for individual papers or panels in a joint stream at IIPPE 2020 Annual Conference (Ferrara, Italy, 9-11 September). These may include theoretical and empirical contributions that focus primarily on the deployment of a social reproduction lens to consider agrarian questions. Contributions that address these questions in the context of (alternatives to) neoliberalism and populism are strongly welcome owing to the overarching conference theme.

We welcome contributions on the following themes:

  • The relationship between production and reproduction in agrarian questions
  • Interactions between markets, states and families in the rural South
  • Gender and policy change in the agricultural sector
  • ‘Doing gender’ in research on agrarian change: methodological questions and issues
  • The struggle for social reproduction in rural areas
  • Interactions of gender, labour and class in the rural economy 
  • Debating the feminization of labour in agriculture
  • Gender, rural social movements and capitalism
  • Rural-urban migration through a gender lens
  • Gendered commodity chains/ production networks
  • Debating gender and land reform/ rights under global capitalism
  • The political economy of time and time-use in the rural economy
  • Gender and rural poverty

Proposals should be submitted online by 15th March 2020 here. Please tick the Social Reproduction or Agrarian Change Working Group when you make the submission and then indicate clearly under the title or abstract tab that you are submitting to this joint call. If you are submitting a panel, all papers need to be submitted individually and the relevant working groups should be informed: Hannah Bargawi (hb19@soas.ac.uk), Jens Lerche (jl2@soas.a.c.uk), Leandro Vergara-Camus (lv6@soas.ac.uk), Sara Stevano (ss129@soas.ac.uk).
