QUIROS, Julieta. Earning a living in the rural world. Pluriactivity and value production in Córdoba's countryside (Argentina). Problems and proposals for the public agenda. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2022, vol.15, n.2, pp.127-144. ISSN 1852-060X.

Abstract How do people in rural zones of a country like Argentina earn a living? This paper aims to contribuite to the knowledge and public intervention on a series of problems which people who live and work in the argentinian countryside endure in their everyday lives. With that aim, the paper recovers a long-term ethnographic study empirically located in rural towns of Traslasierra, north-west of Cordoba, Argentina. It analyzes the systemic difficulties -both social and governmental- of legibility of which the pluriactive economies that characterize the present and past of this territory -as well as many other rural zones of Argentina and Latin American- are subject. These difficulties, we argue, entail systemic effects of indifference, dispossession and trivialized violence on these rural populations. Therefore, the article also formulates proposals to the public and government spheres, aimed at becaming legible and visible value production processes involved in pluriactive economies. These proposals are commited to intervene in the geographies of inequality that the region endures.

Keywords : Rural life; Pluriactivity; Political Economy; Traslasierra; Argentina.
