Author Workshop
Space – Mediascapes/Translating – Materiality: Rural Societies in the Making

The event is the fifth within a series of workshops that are provided by the interdisciplinary network “Love, Work, and Violence”. This forum actively tries to transcend conventional boundaries of epochs and wants to discuss the output and limits of theoretical perspectives in connection with profound empirical studies. Love, work and violence are keywords for this endeavor. They allow the group to translate the­oretical concepts into different empirical contexts. The network offers several possibilities of working formats and cooperation in the field of rural studies.

This year’s workshop serves the purpose of prepa­ring a joint publication. The group will devote itself to first drafts of empirical studies from different dis­ciplines and different periods which offer a detailed examination of the three concepts discussed during the previous meetings: space, mediascapes/transla­ting, and materiality. The workshop aims to connect the articles in regard to the concepts and to present examples how to apply new approaches to the study of rural societies. The articles will be published in Rural History Yearbook/Jahrbuch für die Geschichte des ländlichen Raumes.
