The emancipatory potential of alternative agricultural practices - gender-sensitive reflections.

Content of the lecture


Agriculture is gender coded in terms of its material relations as well as its symbolic orders. The lecture outlines the power and domination relations that go hand in hand with this and asks about the potential of alternative agricultural practices to break them up. Perspectives of producers of alternative agriculture will be presented and it will be shown how gender relations shape their way of life and where the specifics of alternative agriculture offer spaces beyond normative gender relations.


Language: German with English translation via Zoom
