"Flourishing landscapes: Producing the green countryside in EU rural development policy"

This multi-sited project forms part of the larger DFG-funded research project “Participative development of rural regions”. It addresses the question, how rural natures, such as historical farmer gardens, orchards   and village green are (re-) constructed  in the context of participative development measures for rural areas. The project scrutinizes how these rural natures are discursively and materially constructed, and how participants relate to rural natures in their everyday dwelling in an embodided and affective sense. It analyzes how the social practices related to rural natures are transformed and conversely transform those spaces in the context of development measures. The measures under consideration aim to integrate biodiversity conservation and the (re-)construction of cutlural landscapes into the domain of everyday life. Firstly, the ideas, concepts and representations of nature (e.g. as ecosystem, living environment, landscape) employed and their practical use in engendering a problematization of nature (e.g. the loss of biodiversity) will be analyzed. Secondly, but in the same analytical frame, the social practices, geared towards the transformation of rural natures, will be considered. It will be shown, that those material-semiotic constructions produce entanglements of socionatures, which are continually reworked in the place-specific fabric of human and non-human agents, yet, whose relations of production extend well beyond the immediate locality. Empirically, the research project draws on extended ethnographic as well as discourse analytical data, while theoretically it is located in the Anthropology of Policy, the Anthropology of Environment as well as in Rural Geography.
