Long Description
Over the past decade, gender studies have become increasingly recognised as central to rural research and to the understanding of rural social and economic relations. Work on gender within a rural context has developed both in terms of scope of research and theoretical rigour. While early studies tended to be restricted to the examination of gender roles within agriculture, they now cover a diverse range of rural topics, relations and processes.This edited volume brings together leading academics from across the social sciences to examine these new perspectives on the study of gender and rurality. It combines theoretical debates with a wide range of original empirical research. The book introduces new material on gender identity and the performance of masculinity and femininity in rural areas, contributing to the development of existing theory in this area and providing new insights into the understanding of gender relations in rural areas.
