The deadline for submitting applications for the JPS 2020 Annual Writeshop has been extended to 15 March. The Writeshop organizers are closely monitoring the situation with the coronavirus, and will decide later whether the venue will have to be transferred to a different country (if so, it is likely to be in Cape Town, South Africa). Please follow us closely via the JPS and PLAAS websites, Twitter and Facebook accounts.

We are saddened to learn of the tragic passing of Teodor Shanin, one of the 3 founding editors of JPS, and one of the most influential scholars in the field of rural studies. Watch him discussing his work at a Yale conference in 2013. Watch Video

Explore Journal of Peasant Studies

A leading journal in the field of rural politics and development, The Journal of Peasant Studies (JPS) provokes and promotes critical thinking about social structures, institutions, actors and processes of change in and in relation to the rural world. It fosters inquiry into how agrarian power relations between classes and other social groups are created, understood, contested and transformed. JPS pays special attention to questions of ‘agency’ of marginalized groups in agrarian societies, particularly their autonomy and capacity to interpret – and change – their conditions.
