Curr. 2021 § 5 (1) 12: The students can reflect the current status of the debates on the dynamics of social change in agriculture and rural areas and describe their interactions with social developments (in Austria, Europe and in countries in the south). They will be able to reflect on and analyse processes of urban-rural relationships as well as the fundamentals of regional development processes using social science theories.

The seminar provides practical insights into the situation of agriculture in its various manifestations (agro-industry, smallholder agriculture, subsistence farming) and into regional development processes in countries of the North as well as the South. Theoretical approaches as well as studies and case studies are used to show the realities of life, problem areas and contradictions. In addition, questions of food sociology (food sovereignty) and the social construction of the rural (rural idyll, agrotourism) will be addressed. Special attention will be paid to a gender-sensitive approach to the topics dealt with.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
