Translocal family reproduction and agrarian change in China: a new analytical framework

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This paper advances a new framework for analysing agrarian change in rural China and elsewhere in developing Asia, which centres on translocal family reproduction. The framework highlights the crucial connections between rural families' translocal strategies for meeting reproductive (especially care) needs, their changing aspirations for reproduction, and other aspects of agrarian change, including de-peasantisation, de-agrarianisation and social differentiation. In developing this framework, the paper refers to a village case study in central China and draws on a critique of the 'livelihoods perspective' on agrarian change, approaches focusing on 'global householding', and the cultural reproduction of class and gender.
