GRAS, Carla. Agrarian change and new rurality: Kaleidoscope of soya expansion in the Pampa region. Trab. soc. [online]. 2012, n.18, pp.07-24. ISSN 1514-6871.

In the last decades, and in the framework of the thesis on the configuration of a new rurality, villages and small towns have drawn the attention of the social sciences. Rurality is defined as increasingly polysemic, where the previous boundaries between rurality and agriculture have redefined. Our interest in the rural villages of the Pampa region stands on this understanding, and introduces another key process related to the deep changes caused by the development of a new model of agricultural production, which involved a dynamic of "winners" and "losers". The existence of population living in rural towns and villages that has no relationship with the agriculture and of an agricultural sector profoundly changed are two main driven forces whose consequences on rurality we aim to understand. We are interested in exploring how this differentiation between "winners" and "losers" has affected the social positions held by farmers in local communities as well as their importance in local population and economy. We explore the cultural distinctions and tensions regarding social integration and the extent in which it departs from the idea of community defined by the relative similarity or homogeneity and the stability of its components.

Palabras clave : Rurality; Agricultural model; Social differentiation.
