Rural Sociology

Rural Sociology
2/2016 (ročník / volume 13)
In popular culture, rural and urban areas are often perceived as opposites; in fact, many of the differences are simplified and exaggerated to achieve the desired effect, whether it be the reinforcement of an person’s identity or a media company’s commercial utility. In academic practice though, rural and urban sociologists have a lot to talk about. They study subjects that are defined by their geographical location, yet the role of this location is hard to measure. Is rurality the defining feature of the lives of rural populations? Or is it merely a setting, a background, against which wider social processes are taking place? Is rurality a factor in the explanation of social phenomena, or is rurality itself a factor to be explained?
