Acting together: Political and Economic Spaces of Collective Action in Modern Rural Europe, ca. 1850–2000
The workshop addresses the manifold changes in rural spaces and their influence on rural populations since the 19th century, especially concerning the forms of collective actions in rural associations and communities. Social, economic, juridical and political transformations since the 19th century changed the framework of rural collectivities as "the individual" became the leading social figure of modernity. Nonetheless, collaboration, collectivity and co-operation continued to play an important part of the social, particularly of rural economy and politics. The workshop investigates the variety of cooperative and collective practices in rural Europe as well as the interdependent transformations of rural public and semi-public spaces.
