Uneven rural development in times of the polycrisis.
Veranstaltung: Rural Geographies in Transition: 3rd European Rural Geographies Conference, 26.-29. Juni 2023, Groningen (NL).
(Veranstaltungsbeitrag: Kongress/Konferenz/Symposium/Tagung, Moderation/Leitung)


Large parts of the global population are faced with the effects of the polycrisis (Adam Tooze), the current historical situation resulting from intersecting and mutually reinforcing crises including, among others, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, escalating climate change, deteriorating geopolitical stability following the Russian attack on Ukraine as well as threatening inflation. These developments also affect rural areas, whose uneven development both in relation to urban areas and to each other has been exacerbated in recent decades by the turn from redistribution-minded Keynesian policies to competitiveness-oriented neoliberal approaches.

Accordingly, various scientific debates have dealt with the causes and consequences of uneven rural development. However, given the compounding crises of the current moment, there is a need to better understand the dis/continuities they entail for transforming rural space. For this session, we invite theoretical contributions as well as empirical work situated within the broad framework of political economy – such as uneven development, degrowth, foundational economy, political ecology, or cultural political economy – in order to collectively work toward such an enhanced understanding.

The following is a list of possible subjects for the session, although any submission that is related to the topic is welcomed:

What are the impacts of current crises on rural development (e.g. austerity, infrastructures, real estate investments, tourism)?

What does the polycrisis mean for socio-economic and demographic processes (e.g. urban-rural migration; new emerging peripheries)?

What is the outlook for a socio-ecological rural transformation (e.g. impact of the crises on energy transition; self-sufficiency as an economic model)?

What are the competing visions of future rural development and who is pushing them?

What changes to everyday life can we observe and what do they mean for progressive social ideals (e.g. with respect to gender, poverty, ethnicity, disability)?

What potential for alternative economic structures does ‘the’ rural hold?
