“Rethinking the Dynamics of Rural Transformation in the Philippines: Experiments with Ethical Economic Practices”: with Katherine Gibson, Professor of Human Geography, Australia National University, 9/28

September 28, 2007IASEvents0

How we describe and explain rural change shapes local imaginaries and development pathways. Katherine Gibson will revisit calls made more than a decade ago to rethink the problematic metaphors of rural identity and transformation employed in the literature on agrarian transition. With reference to the Philippines, she suggests that an alternative geography of possibility emerges if we attend to the diverse economies in place and theorize heterogeneous, non-deterministic, dynamics of change. Katherine Gibson is Professor of Human Geography in the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies at the Australian National University. She is an economic geographer engaged in rethinking economic concepts in the light of feminist, poststructuralist and class process theory. This talk was organized by the Markets in Time collaborative. NOTE NEW LOCATION. Map available at http://www.augsburg.edu/about/map.html.
