The organizers are looking contributions that highlight perspectives on
following issues and beyond:
• Theoretical and conceptual approaches to grasp these entanglements (e.g. social-ecolog-
ical resilience, farming resilience, foodscapes, …)
• Empirical examples of these entanglements from different rural areas
• Empirical examples that highlight certain aspects of this entanglement (e.g. the meaning
of farming for winter tourism, provision of ecosystem services, safeguarding of local tra-
ditions, local provision of food, …)
We want to discuss these perspectives to broadly understand what farming contributes to the
viability of rural areas.
We are open for further themes in the perspective of rural studies.
