MENASCHE, Renata  and  WEDIG, Josiane Carine. Family Reunions: Broadened Kinship, Celebrated Rurality. Mundo agrar. [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.30. ISSN 1515-5994.

This article takes family reunions held among peasants as a focus of study. During these events, key cultural categories come to light from which the analyzed group builds up ideas about kinship and also the relations that are implied in it. We observe that, in these cases, there are also indications of specific elements through which people express a valorization of rurality. To carry out this study, we collected data as part of an ethnographic research project conducted at a family reunion and in a rural community settled by German descendent immigrants, located in Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil.
